Hello Codeforces, yesterday I published a new light tool to extract CodeForces problems in PDF format, you can find the tool and the story behind it in this GitHub repository.

Have fun and if there are any comments about it, please let me know :)

  1. Could you add requirements.txt for easier installation?
  2. What's the purpose of the minified CSS file in repository? If it's yours, you'd better put it not minified; if it's just Codeforces CSS, you'd better fetch this from CF.
  3. I think using selenium for just downloading the page and extracting subtree of the DOM is a bit overkill.

    1. I've created requirements.txt can you check it?
    2. The css.css file contains the styles for problem statement block in the page from CodeForces, the file is static for all problems in the sit, so I've decided to put it with the code and not to fetch it every time someone trying to download new problem.
    3. I know, and Selenium make it very slow, but if you provide me a method to render MathJax characters from HTML into PDF and get this n, I will remove Selenium and use regular HTTP get request.

      1. It's fine now, thanks
      2. It could change on Codeforces, so I'd still prefer to fetch it from CF but that's just faultfinding.
      3. Oh, I forgot that CF problem pages are not static. That's okay in this case, sorry for faultfinding again.

      Can't you convert the TeX representation of MathJax characters to PDF?
