An API and template editor to create PDF documents

Don’t worry about the document generation layer in your software - we will handle it.

Users can edit and manage their templates

We provide a workspace logic that allows creating a separate workspace for each of your user where they can edit and manage their templates. A new workspace is automatically created whenever you make API requests with a new workspace identifier.

Every user has their own workspace

Allow your users to modify templates

You can embed the template editor into your application to allow your users to modify their own templates. It is possible to display the editor in a new window/tab or in an iframe.

Allow your users to modify templates

Share templates with your users

You can set up default templates that can be used as base templates by your users. Whenever they modify a default template a new copy is saved to their workspace.

Default templates for your users

Powerful Expression language

You can write mathematical and logical expressions to manipulate and customize values displayed in components. Use ternary, arithmetic, bitwise and comparison operators, functions to sum, join and iterate arrays.

Data Security & Privacy

We care about your data privacy

No data is stored

We don't store any data used to generate the document or the generated document itself. We only store the template structure and any static text which is added to the template. The log files never contain the data you send via API.

Secure traffic

All API connections are established through secure and encrypted SSL channels. Our SSL Certificates use strong signature algorithm SHA256withRSA and we support only TLS 1.2 connection. Qualys SSL Labs rates our infrastructure setup with grade A.

API Security

Each API call must include API key, Workspace ID and HMAC SHA-256 signature generated with the API secret. The HMAC signature is used to validate the origin and integrity of the API call. This way, the signature is unique for each API call.

Secure storage

Our database instances use encryption. Data that is encrypted at rest includes the underlying storage for DB instances, its automated backups, read replicas, and snapshots.

GDPR compliance

We are committed to GDPR compliance across our services and provide custom deployment in European regions provided by AWS.

Daily backups

All our databases are backed up on a daily basis to keep your templates safe.
