Details

Had a client recently who needed to be able to turn pages from their Processwire driven site into a PDF. I took a look at how this best might be achieved and present here my rough workings of a 'Pages to PDF' module for Processwire.

Please note this is in no way a finished module and is tailored to the developers amongst you (not novice users) as it needs modification per project, but it should be a good starting step if anyone else needs to do anything similar.

Dependencies:
FPDF (included).

I'd love love love some more contributors to this to help improve it. For example, I'd like to have an ASMselect instead of the page list, but couldn't figure it out in the time I had.
