Question: Are there alternatives to wkhtmltopdf?

Why: wkhtmltopdf is converting my css wrong, do not show the background property of a div

    Can you give more details about the background property that is not shown in the PDF? You should get everything shown in the html unless you have a "display:none" in a print.css I would try to solve the wkhtmltopdf before trying other more complex solutions. – user290546 Jun 8 '14 at 7:44

    The question is almost 2 years old, could you find a decent replacement? – e2-e4 Mar 23 '16 at 4:06
