iText DITO aids PDF workflows

iText Group has launched iText DITO, developed in order to reduce the time-consuming complexities that many developers face when creating and maintaining data-driven PDF templates.

iText DITO is a template engine built on iText’s technology: iText 7 Core and its add-ons pdfHTML and pdfCalligraph.

It consists of a user-friendly browser-based application and a Java back-end. It enables seamless integration of HTML5, CSS, PDF 2.0 and global language/ligature support into document workflows.

 iText DITO allows anyone to design, configure and connect data from HTML input forms and PDF output templates, in any company house style, to the appropriate back-end data and logic, ensuring correct business results. Modifications can be made to templates, without changing a single line of code.

“I am excited that we can finally show our latest innovation to the developer community. They will be pleased that iText DITO can reduce their development time of PDF templates by 70%, clearly a substantial time-saving solution for them and their company,” said Raf Hens, Head of Technology at iText.

The applications of iText DITO are various: for instance, credit card statements, airline boarding passes, utility bills, application forms, medical records, invoices and many more.
