Just found this page

could be helpful to implement this feature into Redmine.

I have implemented for myself pdf generation with Prince XML, it works well, but it's not free for non personal use.

I've been thinking a bit on this problem and the "textile to html to pdf solution" is not the cleanest IMHO.
In fact, a direct textile to pdf renderer would be better but it's not an easy task (and should maybe developed outside of the Redmine project).

If only i'd have more spare time to do it :/

Mediawiki provides this feature through a plugin, and i use it a lot.
I'd love to have this with redmine too :-)

I was under the impression that redcloth supports exporting textile to LaTeX (although I couldn't find since what version). Not sure how much "other" stuff you'd need to get the LaTeX to pdf (I do have LaTeX installed on my machines, not sure how much of a dependency you would want to make that), but that might be a possible solution too.

Hi All, I'd love this one. By now, I have to export to HTML and merge the files before converting in PDF...

why not skip the html part, and instead go textile to xml, that would seem simple enough, then use xsl-fo to generate pdf?

Issues can already be exported to PDF, so there's already code in Redmine that can do this. Can't we just reuse the same code for wiki pages?

Actions #35

Updated by Arnaud Martel over 13 years ago

Colan,

Unfortunately not!!! Issue's pdf export is made with a complete rewrite of the issue using pdf functions... In my opinion, using wkhtmltopdf, as I did for wiki pages, offers a better result (at least for inline images...) even if I perfectly know that is not perfect (call an external application is never the better solution if you want scalability and cross-platform support).

Actions #36

Updated by Evgeny Seliverstov over 13 years ago

It will be good even if redmine will export wiki to docbook. Docbook generation is not platform dependent and easier unlike pdf generation (mentioned wkhtmltopdf can't work on *bsd). For example MoinMoin has DocBook export.

Hey, i dont agree. This plugin is probably very cool, but it's not what this ticket is about. As said in the description

User can click a "pdf" link in wiki page to export content as pdf file.

It's about automatic generation from wiki to pdf.

The plugin is about document publishing, you need the admin of the site to explicitely publish each and every page. Also.. using latex for this seems overkill.

Unfortunately, i'm not allowed to re-open this bug :-(

Updated by Joshua Villagomez about 13 years ago

I agree with Thomas, ideally, a link option for every wiki would be a great feature to have. This gives user ability to export to PDF on the fly. We can't have all users be admins using DocPu. There must be a simpler method.

Hey guys, "Arnauds first steps" http://www.redmine.org/issues/3463#note-35 looks very promising. Can the plugin use a hooks for new pdl link in wiki side, better than patching views? Needs some test, also- someone gave it a test?

Looks as the knowledgebase plugin already ships wiki kind export. Maybe functional migration is possible here
