Laravel package for Fpdf

Latest Stable Version Total Downloads StyleCI License

This repository implements a simple ServiceProvider that creates a singleton instance of the Fpdf PDF library - easily accessible via a Facade in Laravel.

See FPDF homepage for more information about the usage.

Installation using Composer

$ composer require codedge/laravel-fpdf

Usage

Laravel >= 5.5

Enjoy the auto discovery feature.

Laravel <5.5

To use the static interfaces (facades) you need to add the following lines to your config/app.php. The [1] is for registering the service provider, the [2] are for specifying the facades:

// config/app.php

return [

    //...
    
    'providers' => [
        // ...
        
        /*
         * Application Service Providers...
         */
        // ...
        Codedge\Fpdf\FpdfServiceProvider::class, // [1]
    ],
    
    // ...
    
    'aliases' => [
        // ...
        'Fpdf' => Codedge\Fpdf\Facades\Fpdf::class, // [2]
]

Now you can use the facades in your application.

Configuration (optional)

Run
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Codedge\Fpdf\FpdfServiceProvider" --tag=config
to publish the configuration file to config/fpdf.php.

Open this file and enter the correct page settings, if you do not want the defaults.

Basic example

If you want to use the facade you can see a basic example here:

// app/Http/routes.php | app/routes/web.php

Route::get('/', function () {

    Fpdf::AddPage();
    Fpdf::SetFont('Courier', 'B', 18);
    Fpdf::Cell(50, 25, 'Hello World!');
    Fpdf::Output();

});

Of course you can also inject the singleton instance via dependency injection. See an example here:

// app/Http/routes.php | app/routes/web.php

Route::get('/', function (Codedge\Fpdf\Fpdf\Fpdf $fpdf) {

    $fpdf->AddPage();
    $fpdf->SetFont('Courier', 'B', 18);
    $fpdf->Cell(50, 25, 'Hello World!');
    $fpdf->Output();

});

Use in Laravel Vapor

If you are wanting to use the Laravel Vapor platform to host your application, a special/specific header will need to be attached to each response that FPDF returns to your browser. To enable the use of this header, add the following environment variable to the Vapor environment file:

FPDF_VAPOR_HEADERS=true
You can’t perform that action at this time.
