PhantomJS: Convert Any Web Pages to PDF or PNG on Server Side

November 14th, 2016 2 comments

While developing a new feature for our vSearch product, I found the Javascript’s capability to screenshot a page is quite limited. As normal, the explanation is that it’s designed as such due to security reasons. No one wants a Javascript secretly capture a screenshot of what’s currently viewed. I personally don’t think it’s a good explanation why it’s not implemented as easily as it should have been. Similar, I think riskier, features like exchange clipboard content has been implemented.
