#TIL 35 - Fix blank image with html2pdf

blog_hero_#TIL 35 - Fix blank image with html2pdf

HTML2PDF is quite popular tool for convert html2pdf from client side. However, I run into this issue with blank image. It is a bit surprise as the document doesn't mention about this one. I've searched on Github issues and found out that's common issue. The default is rendering image from same domain.

Below is the way I've fixed for Threadify+ app which I'm working on recently.

const downloadPdfFile = async (id?: string) => {
  const element = document.getElementById("thread");
  const opt = {
    filename: `${id}-${Date.now()}.pdf`,
    pagebreak: { mode: ["avoid-all", "css", "legacy"] },
    html2canvas: { scale: 2, useCORS: true }, // Allow to render image from different domain

  // @ts-expect-error global html2pdf from CDN
  return window.html2pdf().set(opt).from(element).save();
