Re: Run wkhtmltopdf under docker

by Landis Arnold <landis@nomadic.net> - 13/04/2017 10:47:48
We actually installed wkhtmltopdf after postgres and before Odoo.

# Intall wkhtmltox from Odoo - Used for HTML to PDF for reports
# *************************************************************
#    We need the upstream version, taken from URL:
#    https://www.odoo.com/documentation/8.0/setup/install.html
# ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Danager
#  To print PDF reports, you must install wkhtmltopdf yourself: the version of
#  wkhtmltopdf available in debian repositories does not support headers and
#  footers so it can not be installed automatically. The recommended version is
#  0.12.1 and is available on the wkhtmltopdf download page, in the archive
#  section. As there is no official release for Debian Jessie, you can find
#  ours on http://nightly.odoo.com/extra/.
# ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
#
cd /tmp
[ "$FAB_HTTP_PROXY" ] && export HTTP_PROXY=$FAB_HTTP_PROXY
wget http://nightly.odoo.com/extra/wkhtmltox-0.12.1.2_linux-jessie-amd64.deb
unset HTTP_PROXY
dpkg -i wkhtmltox-*.deb
ln -s /usr/local/bin/wkhtmltopdf /usr/bin/wkhtmltopdf
ln -s /usr/local/bin/wkhtmltoimage /usr/bin/wkhtmltoimage

Might be dated by now.  This was vers 8.0 Odoo.  Need to start the move to 9 10 and 11 I am sure.

I need to go back in time to follow this more clearly but, at the time of build I recall complications in getting the functional build to be installed rather than the most recent one.

Anyway, one method here.

And a backport your module to 8.0 as well would also be great.

Very cool to put more print controls in as 6ou describe.
wkhtmltopdf was one of the more complicated parts of our installation I recall

Thanks for that one, really cool. Could you also create a backport to 9.0?

Hi all,

Not related to the original question, but I wanted to pass --disable-smart-shrinking to wkhtmltopdf (for a specific print) without modifying the Docker image or container in any way, so I created a simple module called report_paper_params. It allows you to disable smart shrinking, or specify any other wkhtmltopdf parameter by paper size in Odoo. I hope it proves useful.

Hi Graeme,

I have tried your approach, and works like a charm :)

Certainly the main issue was the smart shrinking. We are designing the check printing in a standard format called DLT103 - https://github.com/OCA/account-payment/tree/9.0/account_check_printing_report_dlt103 - and the dimensions need to be perfect in order to ensure proper alignment with the checl.

I created a new file 'wkhtmltopdf' as follows:

#!/bin/sh

/usr/local/bin/wkhtmltopdf-bin --disable-smart-shrinking "$@"

Jordi,

Let me start with the presumption that really your preference is not to dockerize wkhtmltopdf.  I too had similar trouble with stretch, which as its about to become stable I guess Odoo is about to have same problem.

wkhtmltopdf 0.12.5 looks promising however is not here yet.  I am having good results with 0.12.4 however in order to get sizing the same as 0.12.1 need to add --disable-smart-shrinking to the commandline.  It does however resolve the dpi issues on Linux of 12.3 and 12.2.  (Mac still broken, windows idk)

My thoughts are just to write a simple bash script called wkhtmltopdf which takes the arguments, adds the missing option and passes to wkhtmltopdf-bin (renamed binary).

Hi! Has anyone attempted to run wkhtmltopdf under a docker container (separate from odoo).

We are struggling to install normal.wkhtmltopdf 0.12.1 in debian stretch, and docker seems so much easier in principle.
