Document templating with PDF outputs

Hey Glide community,

I wanted to know if this app concept would be a good candidate for Glide and if anyone has suggestions for templating frameworks that will eventually output as paginated PDF. Considering Jinja2 or WeasyPrint.

-Data and Templates can be combined to create print-ready PDFs or images.
-Users can edit/save template in wysiwyg UI
-System can display pre-PDF-rendered thumbnails of templates with dummy data

Thanks for any help!

I think this is the hardest part and not sure it would be doable in Glide. When I have apps that allow the user to generate PDFs, they are always templates that we fixed the format beforehand with coding in PDFMonkey and not something that the end user can edit.
