PDF Generation via DOMPDF Library

Maintainer: Jeremy Shipman (jeremy@burnbright.net)

Makes use of: https://github.com/dompdf/dompdf Dompdf websites: http://dompdf.github.com/, http://pxd.me/dompdf/www/

Input:

  • HTML string (which could be rendered template)
  • HTML File

Output

  • PDF File location
  • SS File
  • PDF binary stream to browser

Example usage

	$pdf = new SS_DOMPDF();
	$pdf->setHTML($mydataobject->renderWith('MyTemplate'));
	$pdf->render();
	$pdf->toFile('mypdf.pdf');

Debugging

The $pdf->streamdebug(); function is useful for quickly viewing pdfs, particularly if your browser supports displaying pdfs, rather than downloading.

You can check your html before it is converted like this:

	echo $mydataobject->renderWith('MyTemplate');die();
