Does anyone happen to know how to get wicked_pdf working on Alpine Linux 3.15+ (because Docker)

Lee McAlilly asked in Gems / Libraries

My problem is that Alpine dropped support for wkhtmltopdf with version 3.14 and all of the Ruby 3+ Docker images for Alpine are 3.15+ and the wkhtmltopdf-binary gem hasn't been updated since 2016.

Surely this is a common problem: Ruby 3 on Docker Alpine and needing to use wicked_pdf but I've been doing a bunch of googling and can't figure it out.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Full write-up of the issue here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/72833181/how-to-get-wkhtmltopdf-with-a-dockerized-rails-app-with-running-ruby3-0-4-alpin
