2.1.1 2013-03-15 22:03 UTC


RevPDFLib provides the building block to create PDF file for RevPDF web application.

RevPDFLib parses an XML file (build manually or using RevPDF) and generates PDF file. This library can be used as a standalone application.

RevPDFLib takes a XML file as an input and output a PDF file.

"Hello World" example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <font name="courier" size="16" textColor="#3366FF" style="B" />
    <details height="20" isVisible="1" backgroundColor="#FFF">
        <textfield format="text" x="0" y="0" height="10" width="40" border="1" forecolor="#3366FF" backcolor="#FFFF00" zindex="0">
            <font isUnderline="false" isBold="true" isItalic="true" fontName="courier" size="14" />
            <![CDATA[Hello World!]]>

Calling RevPDFLib is really easy:

defined('BASE_DIR') || define('BASE_DIR', dirname(__file__) . '/../');
require BASE_DIR . 'vendor/autoload.php';

$lib = new RevPDFLib\Application();
$data = simplexml_load_file('helloworld.xml');

Please read the MANUAL for further explanations (how to install, how to create a compatible xml file...)
