RVFormatter – XML to PDF automatically and on demand

This post was originally published on this site


Automatically generated PDFs have always been around, but the quality has generally not matched those created by a skilled operator, using a dedicated pagination system. Well, our pagination “engine” is TeX, which can be triggered to run automatically, and on a server.

An exciting development in August of 2014 has been RVFormatter, allowing the generation of beautifully typeset PDFs, automatically from a master XML document. This means that publishers can now generate PDFs on the fly, and as requested by readers. The advantage is that up-to-date information (annotations, comments, etc) can be embedded in the PDF as “layers”.
