Actor picture

PDF Generator


A fork of Jancurn's url-to-pdf act with added name input & and delay until network is idle. Opens a web page in headless Chrome using Puppeteer and prints it to PDF. The input is a JSON object such as: { "url": "https://wiki.org", "pdfOptions": { "format": "a4", "printBackground": true }, "name": "Wiki.pdf" } The "pdfOptions" object is passed to Puppeteer's page.pdf() function - see https://github.com/GoogleChrome/puppeteer/blob/master/docs/api.md#pagepdfoptions Output is a PDF file.

To run the actor, you'll need an Apify account. Simply create a new task for the actor by clicking the button below, modify the actor input configuration, click Run and get your results.


To run the actor from your code, send a HTTP POST request to the following API endpoint:


The POST payload including its Content-Type header is passed as INPUT to the actor (usually application/json). The actor is started with the default options; you can override them using various URL query parameters.

curl https://api.apify.com/v2/acts/yinka~pdf-generator/runs?token=<YOUR_API_TOKEN> \
-d '{
  "url": "https://wiki.org",
  "pdfOptions": {
    "format": "a4",
    "printBackground": true
  "name": "Wiki.pdf"
}' \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \

To use the API, you'll need to replace <YOUR_API_TOKEN> with the API token of your Apify account (view here).
