PDF View

Extension for Kohana's View class that renders as a PDF instead of HTML. Uses DOMPDF to render normal HTML views as PDF Files.

Please report all bugs related to PDF rendering to the DOMPDF issue tracker.

Installation

If your application is a Git repository:

git submodule add git://github.com/shadowhand/pdfview.git modules/pdfview
git submodule update --init

Or clone the the module separately:

cd modules
git clone git://github.com/shadowhand/pdfview.git pdfview

Update DOMPDF

Now install DOMPDF using the submodule:

cd modules/pdfview
git submodule update --init

This will install DOMPDF to vendor/dompdf/dompdf from the DOMPDF Git mirror. For DOMPDF to work properly, the fonts directory must be writable:

# Replace "http" with your web server user and group!
chown http:http vendor/dompdf/dompdf/lib/fonts
# An insecure alternative:
# chmod 0777 vendor/dompdf/dompdf/lib/fonts

Configuration

Edit application/bootstrap.php and add a the module:

Kohana::modules(array(
    ...
    'pdfview' => 'modules/pdfview',
    ...
));

Usage

Placed in a controller action:

// Load a view using the PDF extension
$pdf = View_PDF::factory('pdf/example');

// Use the PDF as the request response
$this->request->response = $pdf;

// Display the PDF in the browser as "my_pdf.pdf"
// Remove "inline = TRUE" to force the PDF to be downloaded
$this->request->send_file(TRUE, 'my_pdf.pdf', array('inline' => TRUE));
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
