Hello Nocoder - welcome to the Forum 🙂
Yes you can generate dynamic PDF / HTML based on database data. If you want to print things with a specific layout in mind, PDF output would probably be the best choice.
Generating PDFs is however not a simple drag&drop operation - you will need to deal with functions.
PDF generation is currently supported with frontend functions via HTML/CSS - meaning that the PDF would be generated by a client with prepared HTML content and styling done via CSS rules. What you could do:
- You create necessary database stuctures (your data + a table that holds your HTML/CSS template with text placeholders for your data)
- You create a frontend function that gets data via a backend call and parse the HTML template (to apply your data via placeholders).
- You then call the function
app.pdf_create() with the prepared HTML, CSS and general PDF options like page layout etc.
REI3 can do lot´s of things without any scripting - but generating rich documents / PDFs requires some effort. If you want to attempt it, I can provide an example app.
