How to generate PDF from HTML in React / Node.js app

Generating PDF from HTML would seem a rather simple action requiring little time and effort. However the reality is somewhat different, and finding the best solution can often be challenging. Let’s consider this hypothetical scenario: We have a React App through which we’d like to create a PDF either from the entire page or just in part. Our PDF document could contain charts, tables, images and/or plain text and should be structured without cuts or overlappings. We also want a button on the page allowing us to save our document. In this article, I will walk you through some different solutions whilst outlining the pros and cons of each. We will start with the simplest method then graduate to the most complex.
