Html To Pdf

Create PDF from HTML

CodeMash's built-in function for generating PDF documents from HTML is a convenient and easy-to-use tool for creating PDF documents from your app or website. It is a serverless function deployed to the cloud, which means it runs on demand and is only charged for the execution time and resources used. This can be more cost-effective and scalable than running a traditional server-based solution.

To use the function, you simply provide the HTML content you want to include in the PDF document and any additional options or settings you want to apply. The function will then generate the PDF document and return it to you in a convenient format.

This built-in function can be especially useful for creating reports, invoices, or other documents that need to be delivered to customers or clients in a professional and standardized format. It can save you time and effort by automating the process of creating PDF documents, and it can help you to ensure that your documents are consistent and of high quality.
