Full Installation Notes

Installing the Package

From PyPI

pip install django-puppeteer-pdf

From source

git clone git://github.com/namespace-ee/django-puppeteer-pdf.git
cd django-puppeteer-pdf
python setup.py install

Installing the puppeteer-pdf

Find the relevant version of the puppeteer-pdf downloads page.

Setting up your Django

Add puppeteer_pdf to your INSTALLED_APPS:

    # ...
    # ...

By default it will try to execute the puppeteer-pdf command from your PATH.

If you can’t add puppeteer-pdf to your PATH or you want to use some other version, you can use the PUPPETEER_PDF_CMD setting:

PUPPETEER_PDF_CMD = '/path/to/my/puppeteer-pdf'

Display static files

Set STATIC_ROOT in your settings.py:

STATIC_ROOT = '/full/path/to/static/directory/'

Make sure your static files and directories are inside this directory.

Note: In production static files are supposed to reside outside the project folder, in a public directory. The STATIC_ROOT-setting gives the path to this directory. However, django-puppeteer-pdf requires that STATIC_ROOT is also set on your local machine.

In development the static files reside in their respective apps folder or in a cross-app directory defined by the STATIC_DIRS-setting. Refer to the django documentation for how you can move static files to the STATIC_ROOT directory through a django script.
