We need to be able to send reports by email automatically. That is, to provide some flexmonster automation to produce output (in HTML or PDF for instance) and send it by mail. We can handle the scripting part, but is flexmonster “automation-able” when not displayed in a web browser?
Thank you for your question.
Yes, it is possible. A combination of HTML5 Flexmonster component and PhantomJS (http://phantomjs.org/) can produce the output (in HTML, PDF, Images) on the back-end without being displayed in a web browser.
Please let me know if you are interested in a demo of such functionality.
You can find more details about exporting on the server without using a browser and a link to the sample on GitHub in our documentation.
