How would you go about converting a HTML form to PDF?

Hello Treehouse! I am working on a form where the user would be able to fill it out then save it as a PDF and then print it. Has anyone does this before or know how to do it? I have seen a lot of APIs but not any of them completely free.

It's not easy to do it on client side (in the browser) We usually solve this problem involving server-side code. I found this solution however it can help for you: jsPDF

A good plugin is pdfMake.

The website has an option to see how your HTML converts PDF on the fly.

If you need any help to get going let me know.
