3 reasons why Doppio is the best PDFMonkey alternative for PDF generation

Generate beautiful PDF on the go from HTML

If you want to use PDFMonkey to generate PDF on your web app, you first need to create templates in PDF Monkey’s backoffice. You don’t have complete control over the design and layout of the generated file.

Doppio, on the other hand, generates PDF from HTML content. You can create the output in your app, with your prefered language, using you design system: Doppio will handle the HTML to PDF conversion. Our experience has shown us that it is the best way to create beautiful custom documents, without any limitation.

Simple and easy to setup and use for developers

Using templates for PDF generation can be a great idea if your team or client need to customize the files by theirselves. But PDF Monkey’s templating system is difficult to manipulate for end users, and the templating system slows down the implementation.

With Doppio, you can start generating PDF in your app in a few minutes. Fast setup, easy integration: Grab your API key and you're just one API call away from your first PDF render.

GDPR and HDS ready API for PDF generation

PDFMonkey stores PDF files after generation until you delete them.

In contrast, Doppio does not store any PDF files after generation. You can use our upload delegation feature to securely store documents in your own S3 bucket, but this is not mandatory. If you do not use upload delegation, the document is stored in a temporary bucket and expires quickly.

We do not retain any data sent to Doppio, and we still provide a way to debug your request by hiding your sensitive parameters. Moreover, our servers are HDS certified, which means you can safely send sensitive health data to Doppio without risk.
