A powerful template engine that converts data into iText-quality PDFs

iText DITO is a data-driven, template-based PDF generator that simplifies the process of creating and maintaining PDFs. It offers an intuitive visual template designer and a powerful API for processing and production (available in Java and Docker flavors).

  • Leverage data, wherever it resides,

  • Empower business users to own their document templates.

Why use iText DITO?

iText DITO is a highly-scalable low-code PDF generation solution designed to meet your business needs. It is comprised of two parts: an intuitive front-end WYSIWYG template designer and a powerful PDF production API developed from the esteemed iText 7 SDK. Together you have a template engine capable of generating a few hundred to a few hundred thousand PDF documents per day.

iText DITO can be used in combination with a database, to either extract data for processing or input information from your database into the documents automatically. 

It's a perfect solution for organizations looking to collaboratively and intelligently manage information, while also reducing developer workload.
