Converting HTML into PDF Tutorial Example in Angular

In this tutorial, we will learn to convert HTML into PDF in the Angular 11/12 app. We will learn step by step how to implement the conversion of HTML into PDF using pdfmake, html-to-pdfmake and jspdf packages.

Converting HTML into PDF Example in Angular

We simply need to follow the given steps for implementing the HTML conversion into PDF in Angular app:

Step 1 – Create the New Angular App

Step 2 – Install the Package

Step 3 – Add Code on View File

Step 5 – Add Code On Component ts File

Step 6 – Start the Angular App


Step 1 – Creating the New Angular App

First of all, open your terminal and execute the given command on it to install an angular app:

ng new convert-intopdf-app

Step 2 – Installing the Package

Next, we need to install the package in the angular app. Further, we open the terminal and execute the following command. 

npm install --save pdfmake
npm install html-to-pdfmake
npm install jspdf --save

Step 3 – Adding the Code on View File

In next step, we create HTML and for display, QR code in the Angular app. Then, we visit src/app/app.component.html and update the following code into it:

<div class="container">
  <div id="pdfTable" #pdfTable>
    <h2>Angular HTML To PDF Generator Example - FreakyJolly</h2>
    <table class="table table-bordered">
  <button class="btn btn-primary" (click)="downloadAsPDF()">Export To PDF</button>

Step 4 – Adding Code On app.Component ts File

Now, follow this step in which we visit the src/app directory and open app.component.ts.  After this, we add the following code to the app.component.ts file:

import { Component, ViewChild, ElementRef } from '@angular/core';
import jsPDF from 'jspdf';
import pdfMake from 'pdfmake/build/pdfmake';
import pdfFonts from 'pdfmake/build/vfs_fonts';
pdfMake.vfs = pdfFonts.pdfMake.vfs;
import htmlToPdfmake from 'html-to-pdfmake';
  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
export class AppComponent {
  title = 'htmltopdf';
  @ViewChild('pdfTable') pdfTable: ElementRef;
  public downloadAsPDF() {
    const doc = new jsPDF();
    const pdfTable = this.pdfTable.nativeElement;
    var html = htmlToPdfmake(pdfTable.innerHTML);
    const documentDefinition = { content: html };

Step 5 – Starting the Angular App

Lastly, we reach the final step of implementation where we execute the following commands on the terminal to start the angular app:

ng serve


Finally, we reach the end of this tutorial in which we have comprehensively learnt about converting HTML into PDF using pdfmake. Hope that you have well understood the concept.
