Hello, I can’t seem to render my css file with EJS. Note that the code above never renders to a website. Instead, it creates a PDF form. The only way I got it to work is by adding the style tag in the template file.

How can I make sure it reads the css file in my assets directory?

I’m having the same issue too. In my case, it wasn’t just the CSS, but the images also. I had to host the images somewhere and linked them to my ejs template using the src attribute on img tag
