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

Hey @Cavila

thanks for that update, I forwarded the info to our team so we can further watch the development.

Have a nice weekend :-), best,

Summary by Christoph Jauera (WMDE)

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)

This works fine (I testet it with font-family)! Thanks and greets from Germany, --Mosmas (talk) 12:52, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

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?

Christoph Jauera (WMDE) (talkcontribs)

Hi @Kghbln

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.

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...
