HTML to PDF converter for C#/.NET (WkHtmlToPdf wrapper). Generates pretty-looking PDF by HTML template or web page URL. Web page is rendered using QtWebKit engine and PDF result is very similar to a web browser view. Engine supports page header/footer, page numbering, custom fonts, javascript execution.
NReco.PdfGenerator nuget can be used for free in non-SaaS apps that have only one single-server production deployment.

This nuget package embeds wkhtmltopdf binaries (for Windows; they're extracted on first use automatically - you don't need to deploy wkhtmltopdf separately) and can be used only on Windows. For cross-platform deployments NReco.PdfGenerator.LT nuget should be used instead.

var htmlContent = String.Format("Hello world: {0}",DateTime.Now);
var htmlToPdf = new NReco.PdfGenerator.HtmlToPdfConverter();
var pdfBytes = htmlToPdf.GeneratePdf(htmlContent);
