Install additional packages - wkhtmltopdf

Hello Good Day!,

I am looking for an additional package to be installed in the server where the application is deployed.
wkhtmltopdf is a package which has to be installed.
sudo apt-get install wkhtmltopdf

Not sure how a new package can be installed in the server.
Any suggestion will be appreciated

Hi Jim,
It’s not possible to use Sudo - our native environments are ‘managed’ so additional packages aren’t permitted - if you want to be in full control you would need to be deploying using Docker.

This jump from Native to Docker is quite a jump and it’s something we’re hoping to address at some point.

Sometimes, if you are able to build wkhtmltopdf or get a binary in the build step you could use that as a workaround but it’s not always successful.
