It would be great to have a build-in pdf-converter, so the client does not need to install some special application to generate PDF from the HTML content.

any hint how to implement this with pure javascript?

You can have a look at:

It's probably technically possible, but mapping the CSS and HTML markup to PDF is huge, not to mention it's totally ineficient to do this in the browser.

uhm, it will require installation of the acrobat javascript extension in client side...

Summary: editor2: output as PDFeditor: output as PDF

a possible editor extension, but the Adobe dependency can't go in dijit (and this feature is probably beyond the scope of the dijit editor)

This feature is kind of beyond the scope of almost anything :) I don't know of any way (despite the API above) that one can translate markup to PDF on a client without the installation of third party software, and to date (Gears notwithstanding) this is not something we've wanted to be involved with.

As far as I know.

I'll keep it open for now as a project idea but at some point I'm going to need a place for all of them :)

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

I think that, given the technical feasibility of something like this, I am going to close this ticket as "wontfix"; these kinds of operations are really better off done on the server-side as it is.
