I am able to install both of these packages on my mac at home and it works well.
I am trying to install on windows 7 at work and it fails. PDFKit is trying to find the wkh package and it cannot. I have entered the full path to the exe for the environment variables and the error below is spit out.
If I explicitly cd into the directory that has the executable the script works fine
>>> import os
>>> pdfkit.from_string('Hello!', 'out.pdf')
Loading pages (1/6) #this works after cd into the exe directory
Where can I specify the path to the executable?
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
g\pdfkit\api.py", line 66, in from_string
g\pdfkit\pdfkit.py", line 39, in __init__
g\pdfkit\configuration.py", line 27, in __init__
OSError: No wkhtmltopdf executable found: "b''"
If this file exists please check that this process can read it. Otherwise please
install wkhtmltopdf - https://github.com/JazzCore/python-pdfkit/wiki/Installing
