A simple Laravel 4 service provider for including the wkhtmltopdf library.

Installation

The Laravel PDF Service Provider can be installed via Composer by requiring the ignited/laravel-pdf package in your project's composer.json.

{
    "require": {
        "ignited/laravel-pdf": "1.*"
    }
}
Note (you must also include wkhtmltopdf binaries)

32-bit systems

{
    "require": {
        "h4cc/wkhtmltopdf-i386": "*"
    }
}

64-bit systems

{
    "require": {
        "h4cc/wkhtmltopdf-amd64": "*"
    }
}

You can include both of these if you need.

Configuration

To use the PDF Service Provider, you must register the provider when bootstrapping your Laravel application.

Publish the package configuration using Artisan.

php artisan config:publish ignited/laravel-pdf

Update your settings in the generated app/config/packages/ignited/laravel-pdf configuration file.

Uncomment the relevant binary.

32-bit systems

return array(
    # Uncomment for 32-bit systems
    'bin' => base_path() . '/vendor/h4cc/wkhtmltopdf-i386/bin/wkhtmltopdf-i386'

64-bit systems

return array(
    # Uncomment for 64-bit systems
    'bin' => base_path() . '/vendor/h4cc/wkhtmltopdf-amd64/bin/wkhtmltopdf-amd64'

Find the providers key in your app/config/app.php and register the AWS Service Provider.

    'providers' => array(
        // ...
        'Ignited\Pdf\PdfServiceProvider',
    )

Find the aliases key in your app/config/app.php and add the AWS facade alias.

    'aliases' => array(
        // ...
        'PDF'             => 'Ignited\Pdf\Facades\Pdf'
    )

Usage

In routes.php

Route::get('/', function() {
    $pdf = PDF::make();
    $pdf->addPage('<html><head></head><body><b>Hello World</b></body></html>');
    $pdf->send();
});
