This bundle provides a wrapper for using dompdf inside Symfony.


Open a command console, enter your project directory and execute the following command to download the latest stable version of this bundle:

composer require nucleos/dompdf-bundle

Enable the Bundle

Then, enable the bundle by adding it to the list of registered bundles in config/bundles.php file of your project:

// config/bundles.php

return [
    // ...
    Nucleos\DompdfBundle\NucleosDompdfBundle::class => ['all' => true],

Configure the Bundle

# config/packages/nucleos_dompdf.yaml

        defaultFont: 'helvetica'
        # See for available options


Whenever you need to turn a html page into a PDF use dependency injection for your service:

use Nucleos\DompdfBundle\Factory\DompdfFactoryInterface;
use Nucleos\DompdfBundle\Wrapper\DompdfWrapperInterface;

final class MyService
    public function __construct(DompdfFactoryInterface $factory)
        $this->factory = $factory;

    public function render()
        // ...
        /** @var Dompdf\Dompdf $dompdf */
        $dompdf = $this->factory->create();
        // Or pass an array of options:
        $dompdf = $this->factory->create(['chroot' => '/home']);
        // ...

final class MyOtherService
    public function __construct(DompdfWrapperInterface $wrapper)
        $this->wrapper = $wrapper;

    public function stream()
        // ...
        $html = '<h1>Sample Title</h1><p>Lorem Ipsum</p>';

        /** @var Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\StreamedResponse $response */
        $response = $this->wrapper->getStreamResponse($html, "document.pdf");
        // ...

    public function binaryContent()
        // ...
        return $this->wrapper->getPdf($html);
        // ...

Render pdf using Twig

If you use Twig to create the content, make sure to use renderView() instead of render(). Otherwise you might get the following HTTP header printed inside your PDF:

HTTP/1.0 200 OK Cache-Control: no-cache

$html = $this->renderView('my_pdf.html.twig', array(
    // ...
$this->wrapper->getStreamResponse($html, 'document.pdf');

Using asset() to link assets

First, make sure your chroot is correctly set and isRemoteEnabled is true.

# config/packages/nucleos_dompdf.yaml

        chroot: '%kernel.project_dir%/public/assets'
        isRemoteEnabled: true

Second, use {{ absolute_url( asset() ) }}

<img src={{ absolute_url( asset('assets/example.jpg') ) }}>


The dompdf wrapper dispatches events to conveniently get the inner dompdf instance when creating the PDF.

  • dompdf.output is dispatched in getPdf()
  • is dispatched in streamHtml()

See Symfony Events and Event Listeners for more info.
