Using Fileforge to quickly generate dynamic PDFs

Why do documents feel so outadated ?

Billions of PDFs are generated daily: invoices, contracts, receipts, tickets,… yet there are no toolkits to allow companies to easily build them. Developers need to get their hands dirty to produce basic documents - let alone beautiful ones. This makes PDFs hard to dynamize and maintain, leading to poor brand experience and flawed analytics.

What is Fileforge ?

Fileforge bridges the gap between developers and documents. We make modern web technologies work for PDF generation: React, Tailwind, … In turn, developers can make highly dynamic documents and iterate quickly. What used to take hours now takes seconds with our API.

To make it even faster, we maintain an open-source library of beautiful components and we offer a hosting and tracking service to better understand your documents.

Why are we building Fileforge ?

We — Pierre, Titouan, and Auguste — previously worked with giant firms, where documents were central to most workflows. They would get passed around, get into client’s hands, and everyone would complain about their layout and lack of proper information. While at a large mining company, clients would want to see shipping information and product details on their invoices. However, the development team wouldn’t be able to update these documents because the task was too complex and expensive.

Join the movement

We are building a community of developers and designers to make documents great again. We believe that documents should be as dynamic and beautiful as the web. We are looking for feedback, contributors, and early adopters.

We are excited to see what you will build with Fileforge.
