Generating PDF files

    Has anyone got any opinions on the "best" pdf generator for pdf?

    Some of what we'll be generating is very mundane & for internal use but some will be legal docs and are going to need precise pagination and layout control.

    I've used this before https://wkhtmltopdf.org/
    The only downside is that it does require some server knowledge as it needs a package installed on the server to be able to run. However, the generation was very good and very precise compared to some of the other ones I've used before.

    Looks like it's paid and it's API via pdf-tools is paid. I'm looking for something I can have on my server and use PHP with.
