Build Status License: MIT JsPDF is an open source that loads JavaScript in an HTML5 environment and creates a pdf document. The current version does not support Custom Fonts. I will try to implement this feature.


It's on the GitHub Pages.

Current Version

Version 0.0.4 jsPDF libary I do not claim to be the author of the jsPDF library, this code simply adds preliminary custom fonts support.

Version History

0.0.1 Initial proof of concept 0.0.2 Support multiline text 0.0.3 Refactor multiline text 0.0.4 Make into a plugin


Download and include jspdf.customfonts.min.js. You can also get the plugin with a package manager:
  • ``npm install jspdf-customfonts``

Getting Started

This document will walk you through the basics of jsPDF and will show you how to create PDF files in the browser. To begin with the default configuration, you should include 3 files:
  • https://unpkg.com/jspdf@latest/dist/jspdf.min.js,
  • dist/jspdf.customfonts.min.js,
  • dist/defaultvfs.js - default vfs font definition (it contains 1 Font)
* however you can use custom fonts according to the following detailed instructions :
1. Run ``npm install``
1. Copy your fonts into the **fonts** subdirectory.
2. Run ```node makeFonts.js``` to create a new dist/default_vfs.js.
3. Include your new **dist/default_vfs.js** file in your code.
