I’ve received my fair share of white papers and other reports in my years. Many times they have lousy designs. Sometimes they’re beautiful though, as I noticed with a recent example SEO audit I found.
But how do you create good looking reports without being a graphic designer? Or becoming a master of InDesign or Microsoft Word?
What if there was a way to easily create reports, for example using something like Markdown (or a WYSIWYG editor) with some pre-built HTML/CSS templates that converted into a PDF? Something easy to use and hard to screw up.
Seems like it might be useful to people. So I registered reportcreator.org. We’ll see if there’s any interest in a better way to create reports.
