Hello Im not sure if this can be done, but Im trying to make a simple app where you create your own lexical analyzer.

So in the webform I ask the necessary information, then I need the following:

  1. After send the webform generate a script file (from a template I already have done)

  2. I need a way to replace some tokens in the script file with data from the submitted webform

  3. Let the user download the generated script file

Any idea how to achieve this? maybe it is not that complex...

Thank you very much

You need hook_webform_submission_insert for that purpose.


This module may be used for your idea please use and try this module


The Webform2PDF Drupal module is an extension of the Webform module. It can be used to generate PDF document from the results of a form. The generated PDF document can be attached to the form summary e-mail sent by Webform module, or it can be downloaded from the /Results/ page. Different PDF templates can be set for each form. The templates can be formatted with HTML tags, and they can be edited with WYSIWYG Drupal module, making the template creation easy and the templates highly customizable. The output documents will be created by using these templates.

  • Hello but generate a pdf is not what I need I need to generate a javascript file... maybe you missunderstood my question...
