Description

Hi on the docs,

https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/howto/outputting-pdf/

please could you consider adding django-wkhtmltopdf to further info or even re-writing the whole page around it?

django-wkhtmltopdf has got some documentation and has recently been updated to use class-based views.

I had lots of problems with using reportlab/pisa etc not least because it's opaque when it has errors. I just could not get it to add my image resource on 1.4. I'm not sure if it's related to static files, I did get it to work once, but only by causing an error with statics.

Once I'd read the django docs about how to use class-based views, I found django-wkhtmltopdf to be a breeze!

On further thought, I think it's better not to add further endorsements of third-party packages.
