thin and PDFkit

Reported by Steve Alex | November 24th, 2010 @ 06:27 AM

Not sure if this is a PDFkit or thin problem, but thin will not serve pdfs generated with PDFKit and it seems to hang up the thin serer.

This is what I posted on the PDFkit site issues, but I may have to go look for another tool since this one seems to gone into a "I don't care anymore state" (no updates in months or anyone looking at issues).


I did find a post somewhere on the web that they could not get PDFkit to work with the Thin server. I searched the issues and saw no reference to thin - so I'll post an issue. It does not work, it just hangs up thin.

Trying various approaches and got a line in the thin.log

The switch --disable-smart-shrinking, is not support using unpatched qt, and will be ignored.The switch --print-media-type, is not support using unpatched qt, and will be ignored.

Than seems like more of a warning, but It just hangs the thin server and you have to kill it.

Don't know if this is an PDFKit issue or Thin issue
