Pressbooks mPDF

Pressbooks mPDF

mPDF is an open source PHP class that generates PDF files from HTML. mPDF is also released under a GPLv2 license and made by people other than the authors of this plugin.

The mPDF class is large and not a development focus for Where the mPDF class has previously been a part of the pressbooks, it has now been removed. Installing this plugin will restore the previous functionality that open source users have come to expect if the license fee for PrinceXML is a barrier.

Pressbooks is a requirement in order for this plugin to do anything useful.
