There is a PDF service for PmWiki 1. Have a look at

Press Publish, then click the PDF icon.

Currently, it works off the generated XHTML. For PmWiki 2, we plan to

- provide 1 click typesetting of individual pages and page collections,
  including wiki trails, calendar entries and selected search results

- take advantage of the new architecture to generate the PDF directly
  from wiki markup

The first goal is to create a proof of concept to show that this idea
will work, then progressively add support for various wiki markups.
