Yet another HTML to PDF Converter based on wkhtmltopdf

2.2.0 2016-11-25 14:18 UTC


This is a yet another html to pdf converter for php. This package uses wkhtmltopdf as a third-party tool so proc_*() functions have to be enabled in your php configurations and wkhtmltopdf tool should be installed in your machine (You can download it from here).


Add this to your composer.json

    "require": {
        "cangelis/pdf": "2.2.*"

and run composer.phar update

Some examples

$pdf = new CanGelis\PDF\PDF('/usr/bin/wkhtmltopdf');

echo $pdf->loadHTML('<b>Hello World</b>')->get();

echo $pdf->loadURL('')->grayscale()->pageSize('A3')->orientation('Landscape')->get();

echo $pdf->loadHTMLFile('/home/can/index.html')->lowquality()->pageSize('A2')->get();

## Saving the output

php-pdf uses League\Flysystem to save the file to the local or remote filesystems.


$pdfObject->save(string $filename, League\Flysystem\AdapterInterface $adapter, $overwrite)

filename: the name of the file you want to save with

adapter: FlySystem Adapter

overwrite: If set to true and the file exists it will be overwritten, otherwise an Exception will be thrown.


// Save the pdf to the local file system
$pdf->loadHTML('<b>Hello World</b>')
    ->save("invoice.pdf", new League\Flysystem\Adapter\Local(__DIR__.'/path/to/root'));

// Save to AWS S3
$client = S3Client::factory([
    'key'    => '[your key]',
    'secret' => '[your secret]',
$pdf->loadHTML('<b>Hello World</b>')
    ->save("invoice.pdf", new League\Flysystem\Adapter\AwsS3($client, 'bucket-name', 'optional-prefix'));

// Save to FTP
$ftpConf = [
    'host' => '',
    'username' => 'username',
    'password' => 'password',

    /** optional config settings */
    'port' => 21,
    'root' => '/path/to/root',
    'passive' => true,
    'ssl' => true,
    'timeout' => 30,
$pdf->loadHTML('<b>Hello World</b>')
    ->save("invoice.pdf", new League\Flysystem\Adapter\Ftp($ftpConf));

// Save to the multiple locations and echo to the screen
echo $pdf->loadHTML('<b>Hello World</b>')
        ->save("invoice.pdf", new League\Flysystem\Adapter\Ftp($ftpConf))
        ->save("invoice.pdf", new League\Flysystem\Adapter\AwsS3($client, 'bucket-name', 'optional-prefix'))
        ->save("invoice.pdf", new League\Flysystem\Adapter\Local(__DIR__.'/path/to/root'))
