We here at the DynamicPDF Cloud API are excited to announce that the DynamicPDF Cloud API can now convert HTML to PDF. With the addition of a new input type to the pdf endpoint, you can easily convert HTML pages to PDF documents. And you can specify raw HTML or a file path in your local storage system or in the DynamicPDF Cloud Storage. And we updated all client libraries to support HTML conversion. The HTML input type can also be mixed with other input types such as PDF, image, DLEX and page to create PDF documents with pages from multiple sources.

We've been busy here at DynamicPDF. We've just about completed BETA testing on a new HTML to PDF feature of the Cloud API. We expect it to be released in January 2023.

We're also working on a new PDF rasterization feature. This will make it possible to convert PDF documents to images. BETA testing will begin shortly, and we expect this to be released in early 2023.

Happy Holidays!

Recently we started creating numerous written tutorials and video tutorials to help you get started using the DynamicPDF Cloud API. We are happy to announce our first tutorial: Getting Started - DLEX and Designer.

This short tutorial illustrates how to create a simple dynamic PDF report. We first use DynamicPDF Cloud API's Designer to create a DLEX report template and associated JSON data. After creating the DLEX file, we illustrate using DynamicPDF Cloud API's dlex-layout REST endpoint to process the DLEX file and generate a PDF document.

The tutorial is designed as your "first steps" using DynamicPDF Cloud API, so be sure to check it out.

One of the critical features of the DynamicPDF Cloud API is its ability to scale based on demand automatically. Our team has been working hard to test out this feature over the past few weeks. We've been testing like crazy and have created over 1.2 billion test pages in the process. We're happy to report that auto-scaling is now up and running in all 10 of our geographic zones and performing quite nicely. We'll keep testing and tweaking things as usage increases to ensure things continue to run optimally.
