Paged.js for creating printable documents with HTML and CSS

Published on April 05, 2021.

I just came across paged.js, a JavaScript library specifically made to make it easy to use HTML and CSS to make websites that look nice when printed or saved as PDFs, and it looks really interesting. The demo that lead to my discovery of the library looks especially appealing.

I think this might finally lead to me wanting to maintain my CV as a HTML document. Even writing other types of documents using paged.js sounds appealing. At a glance this seems much better, in my opinion, than using a typesetting system like LaTeX or an office suite like LibreOffice.

I’m really looking forward to taking this for a spin!
