FillPDF Service is shutting down on August 31, 2022

First, the main point: FillPDF Service will be shutting down at the end of August.

What's happening, and when?
On August 31, 2022, FillPDF Service will stop responding to API requests, and the website will no longer be available. Website visitors will see an alert about this on every page.

Why?
Briefly, I no longer wish to continue running the service, and I don't want to deal with the complexity of transferring or selling it either. That complexity has increased due to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as well. Plus, it would not be difficult for someone to create a new website that receives API requests and forwards them to FillPDF LocalServer or a similar project. That is essentially what FillPDF Service does.

But I use FillPDF Service! What should I do?
The FillPDF Drupal module also works with FillPDF LocalServer and pdftk. You can read more about setting them up in the Drupal 7 and Drupal 9 installation documentation.

If you can't do it yourself, a developer with Docker experience can assist you in setting up FillPDF LocalServer. (I will only be available for basic support over email.)

What will happen to my data?
All live data will be deleted. I will keep a backup copy of the site for one year and then delete that as well. This is in case people need historical invoices. However, for the smoothest experience, you should plan to download any invoices you need before the service shuts down.

Thanks to all who have subscribed over the years.

P.S. FillPDF LocalServer won't receive updates in particular but should keep working for a while. If anyone is interested in taking it and the related FillPDF Servlet project over, let me know.
