PDF generation in Azure App Service

Iron Contributor

I'm looking for a solid option for PDF generation that is compatible with running within the constraints of Azure App Service or Azure Functions.  I know of several options but am curious what others are using and having solid reliable success with?

Just now seeing this! The problem is the deep OS-dependencies that PDF generation requires, and which is unavailable in the App Service sandbox. See this description is the Kudu service wiki: https://github.com/projectkudu/kudu/wiki/Azure-Web-App-sandbox
But if you have HTML source, here is a blog article that considers several options and lands on one: https://whuysentruit.medium.com/generate-html-based-pdf-reports-from-azure-app-service-a2c63838abb3
