Drupal 7.59

I use Views extensively, and would like to add https://www.drupal.org/project/views_data_export_pdf module.

As per the Module documentation, a prerequisite is the installation of wkhtmltopdf Library (https://wkhtmltopdf.org/), which should result in the following structure :

  • sites/all/libraries/phpwkhtmltopdf
  • sites/all/libraries/phpwkhtmltopdf/scr
  • sites/all/libraries/phpwkhtmltopdf/scr/Pdf.php

But I don't find those files in the wkhtmltox-0.12.4_linux-generic-amd64.tar.xz dowload, especially no Pdf.php

I am not a programmer, and thus not familiar with Libraries installation : any help would be welcome

  • wkhtmltopdf needs to be installed on the server - phpwkhtmltopdf, note the preceding php, is the PHP wrapper around that library. That's what Drupal needs. It's here: github.com/mikehaertl/phpwkhtmltopdf

  • You install libraries module as any other module but to install a library that can be picked up by libraries module (and hence used by other modules) you have to put it as @Clive mentions above in this directory sites/all/libraries/phpwkhtmltopdf and make sure the sites/all/libraries/phpwkhtmltopdf/scr/Pdf.php is actually there.

  • Thank you to both of you ; if I understand well, I just have to download, unzip and copy phpwkhtmltopdf to sites/all/libraries ? (Libraries Module is already in sites/all/modules). (BTW, Pdf.php is there, under src, not scr) May 3, 2018 at 8:00
  • Clive : if you transform your comment in an answer I will be glad to approve it. May 12, 2018 at 9:27
  • @Clive where does this library go in Drupal 8? Apr 2, 2019 at 14:50
