When it comes to business, you need your processes to be as efficient as possible. So why waste time manually generating documents when you can use a service like cloudlayer.io to generate documents for you?

If you don't want to write code, you can use one of our many no-code integrations, such as Zapier, to set up the entire process without touching a single line of code.

Generate PDF Documents

Using our PDF document generation API, you can generate PDF documents using HTML or one of our predefined pdf templates. We have many expertly crafted templates, such as invoices for example.

You can take any existing website, use the URL, or bring your own HTML, and we will turn that into a PDF document for you. Once the document generation process is complete, we will send you a public URL that you can use to download your PDF document or share it with your users.

If you want to create a template and use that, you can build an HTML template using Nunjucks templating syntax. Provide the template and the data, and we will merge them together and send you the PDF.

We provide many options to help you automate your document generation. If you need assistance, please reach out. We are always available and ready to help.

Generate Dynamic Images

Using our image document generation API, you can also generate dynamic images using HTML, a URL, or one of our predefined image templates for things like Podcast Covers, etc.

Nearly identical to the PDF generation, you can create dynamic images using an existing URL, your own HTML, and the Nunjucks templates. We support creating images in various formats such as PNG, JPEG, WebP, and more.

Document Generation Features

So what other document generation features do we offer? For every document type, we support generating a thumbnail and will give you a thumbnail URL that is placed on our global CDN network. It will be optimized for efficient usage on your websites or apps. Thumbnail generation of your documents is included at no additional cost or credit usage.

Storage for your documents is included in your account, and we will store your documents securely and provide a public URL for you to access them or share your documents.

How Does It Work?

We use headless Chrome instances to take the HTML, URL, and Template and convert it into PDFs or images. This allows us to generate pixel-perfect representations of your original content.

Once we have converted it, we run it through a bunch of other processes to generate the thumbnail if you have requested one, upload your document for sharing, etc. All the documents you generate are cached for quick access in our global CDN.

It's also important to mention that our PDF documents are searchable and are real text-based PDF documents, not images embedded into a PDF.
