VipRiser is extensible virtual PDF printer

Its main purpose is to produce a PDF from any application that can print. A user can customise the entire process with Automator workflows, turning VipRiser into powerful publishing platform. Although the purpose is very similar to other solutions out there, it offers some unique features that others do not.

  • User-friendly user interface
  • Fully customisable using Automator plugins
  • Works as iPrinter – printing from iPhone or iPad
  • Supports AppleScript scripting
  • Can be called from other Automator workflows
  • PDFs can be sent directly to iTunes, DropBox or Kindle
  • Printed files can be published to RSS feed (HTTP server built-in)
  • Raw postscript driver for advanced processing (e.g. using Ghostscript)

What makes it different from the others

compared to OS X built-in PDF services:

  • prints PDF from any application, including those not supporting the PDF services, namely Adobe products
  • shareable over the network

compared to CUPS-PDF:

  • supports MacOS 10.12
  • provides user-friendly user interface
  • no PS to PDF conversion, PDF are generated directly resulting in smaller files and no quality degradation
  • integrates with Automator workflows for post-processing

NOTE: VipRiser contains alternative driver that uses the same PPD as CUPS-PDF
