Usually, PDF files like invoices are built by developing an HTML template, filling it with information and then converting it to PDF. But, this approach is defective as converting HTML to PDF can become problematic and the styling can break.

In this article, we will show the reader how to craft a beautiful invoice using the inbuilt methods of UniPDF.

Create an Invoice in the Playground

In the playground example mentioned below, we are creating a detailed invoice directed to Jane Doe. The code highlights how you can customize the colors of the table, set a logo and add invoice items into the PDF file easily.

You could be getting the data from a database, or from an external API. Since it's using golang, you will be able to easily integrate the data into invoices and employ the inbuilt functions to make all sorts of customizations.
