Readme

UTF-8 FDF File Generator
PDF file form filler file (FDF) generator.
Generates FDF files based on UTF-16 (you don't have to convert anything) so they support UTF-8 characters.

General Information

Usage

Its is synchronous, just call it, upon return, the file will be already created and you can use it:
generator = require('utf8-fdf-generator').generator;
generator({ myField01: "Gabriel Medina", myField02: "Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, México" }, "output.fdf");
// Do whatever you need with file output.fdf here.

You usually do something like:
user@server:~ $ pdftk template.pdf fill_form generated.fdf output final_output.pdf flatten

Where:
  • template.pdf is the original PDF form
  • generated.fdf is the file we generated
  • final_output.pdf is the PDF file with fields filled using data from generated.fdf
