Using IronPDF

IronPDF for Node.js utilizes a powerful Chrome Engine to render PDFs from HTML strings, files, and web URLs. Since the rendering process can be computationally intensive, it is recommended to delegate this task to the server-side. Frontend frameworks like ReactJs and Angular can communicate with the server to offload the computational work and await the result, which can then be displayed on the frontend side.


Using npm:

npm install @ironsoftware/ironpdf

Using yarn:

yarn add @ironsoftware/ironpdf

IronPdf required IronPDF Engine binary, which will download automatically on the first run. Or you can install it as a npm package (Recommended) (Optional)
