In this article, we will learn how to convert HTML to PDF in Angular 9.

Prerequisites:

  • Basic knowledge of Angular
  • Code editor like Visual Studio Code

Create a new Angular project by typing the following command in the VSCode terminal.

ng new html-to-pdf

Now, open the newly created project and execute the commands given below.

npm install html2canvas
npm install jspdf

html2canvas

The script allows you to take “screenshots” of webpages or parts of it, directly on the user’s browser. The screenshot is based on the information available on the page.

jspdf

Generate PDF files in client-side JavaScript.

Open the app.component.html file and add the code in it.
