new PDF templates method in Mage2

Feature request from seansan, posted on GitHub May 22, 2014

Is it possible to add a new PDF generation mechanism in Magento 2 in CORE?

Maybe based on HTML -> PDF or using advanced PDF editors?

Something like: http://www.aromicon.de/magento-download-extensions-modules/en/aromicon-invoice-pdf-pro.html

or

http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/html2pdf.html

Now it is almost impossible to change anything about the PDF documents without very advanced programming and changing complex files

Many thanks

Maybe better way is remove PDF generation from Magento at all. I believe that for most customers the print versions of pages are enough. Rest can use dompdf library to convert html in pdf (library license incompatible with Magento, so it cannot be in core!) What do you think of that?

I think the biggest win would be to move to html/css where all the usual variables are accesible through an object -> from there many formats can be generated

Many of the modern extension work that way
