jsreport is free open-source reporting engine "[c]ombining javascript templating engines with phantomjs or fop."[2] The software can either be downloaded and hosted on-premises or used via the hosted online version.

Product history

Development began on jsreport in early 2013 as response to programmer Jan Blaha's discontent with what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) reporting tools:

"I don't like the way of designing business reports in WYSIWYG editors. jsreport allows you to write the reports using code. Just use JavaScript templating engines and jsreport will render your template in nodejs sandbox and print it to pdf output."[3]

A beta 0.1.0 release of the software arrived on May 10, 2014.[1]
