Yet another HTML to PDF Converter based on wkhtmltopdf

2.1.0 2014-11-15 21:05 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).

Check out the Laravel version if you're using Laravel Framework.


Add this to your composer.json

    "require": {
        "cangelis/pdf": "2.1.*"

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'))
