I'm not sure how this will impact the future of this extension, but news has it that the Wikimedia Foundation has given up on Electron and established a (renewed) partnership with PediaPress: Reading/Web/PDF Functionality
thanks for that update, I forwarded the info to our team so we can further watch the development.
Have a nice weekend :-), best,
To adjusted styles of the print/PDF version of a wiki you can add css to the MediaWiki:Print.css page.
Is it possible to format the pdf output through CSS (or somehow else)? E. g. change the serif font to sans-serif or change the appearance of <pre> paragraphs? --Mosmas (talk) 10:10, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
Hey @Mosmas, you can add special CSS rules to the general print layout of you wiki on the MediaWiki:Print.css page of the wiki. ( e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Print.css ). The CSS there should also affect the layout of the ElectronPDF output.
See as well Manual:Interface/Stylesheets
Hope that works for you, best
Ubuntu Server 16.04.3 LTS
I added what the $wgElectronPdfServiceRESTbaseURL variable should be set to to run this on version of Ubuntu. At least from what I found while I struggled to get it setup locally.
Does this extension require the RESTbase to be served via https for a wiki using https?
if this is still relevant for you: From looking roughly into the code I would assume that this does not matter.
Thanks for your reply! I will give it another shot soon.
very useless extension
This extension is very very useless. It needs to install a lot of useless softwares (and very complicated to configure without a spep by step guide) and the result is the same if you click on "printable version" and then print as a pdf with your browser. Crazy stuff...
