Welcome to the community that respects paper and printing
If you believe that ink on paper has enduring, practical value, then this is the community for you. This part of the HP Developers' portal is devoted to webpage and mobile printing. (HP's Mobile Printing SDK has been deprecated.)
Here you can find answers to your questions about integrating printing into your apps, websites and web services. This is an HP portal, but we welcome all developers, regardless of printer brand, corporate affiliation, or operating system. You just have to respect paper and appreciate the enduring value of printing.
Note to Android developers: mobile printing became fully native on Android Oreo.

Expand your awareness
Web and PC printing was around long before APIs, so a lot can be done within the existing HTML code. Many of the tools you need for excellent web printing were unlocked decades ago. Our community blog and tutorials will help you expand your awareness of those tools.
Share your experience
If you have a favorite code trick, tweak, or use of print for your web pages and apps, please share it on our community Forum. Your technique may be featured in a future blog post.
