The Pagify team is thrilled to announce the availability of our alpha! Pagify is a new way to generate Portable Document Format (PDF) documents, using the power of the cloud. If you are a web application developer or a cloud developer looking for a next-generation service to generate PDF documents, you have landed at the right place! Pagify allows you to create documents of any complexity in three easy steps: Design, Plug-in and Generate.
Use our public REST-based API to pass in data for dynamic objects. If it is a sales report, for example, pass the sales data so that it can be displayed in a chart. If it is a customer invoice document, send in the details of the items purchased and it will be displayed in a table. Make sure to match the field name of the objects with the data that you are passing.
Use the API to generate documents programmatically from within the workflow of your web application. The document template created during the design stage will be merged with the data passed (in the plug-in stage) to create the final PDF document. Currently, the PDF data is returned directly but support for direct email and storage (for later use) is currently being worked on so expect that to be available soon.
As of now the product is only in an alpha stage so expect (a lot of) kinks and issues. We need your feedback and support to sort them out and make the best cloud-based PDF document generation service available. We have currently clients available for Ruby (Rails), Node.js and PHP available at https://github.com/pagify/. Support for more platforms/languages is on its way.
The signup form is available at http://alpha.pagify.io/invitations/new. We would love to hear your feedback so feel free to contact us!
