Third party fonts:

This library may include third party font files released with different licenses.

All the PHP files on the fonts directory are subject to the general TCPDF license (GNU-LGPLv3), they do not contain any binary data but just a description of the general properties of a particular font. These files can be also generated on the fly using the font utilities and TCPDF methods.

All the original binary TTF font files have been renamed for compatibility with TCPDF and compressed using the gzcompress PHP function that uses the ZLIB data format (.z files).

The binary files (.z) that begins with the prefix "free" have been extracted from the GNU FreeFont collection (GNU-GPLv3). The binary files (.z) that begins with the prefix "pdfa" have been derived from the GNU FreeFont, so they are subject to the same license. For the details of Copyright, License and other information, please check the files inside the directory fonts/freefont-20120503 Link : http://www.gnu.org/software/freefont/

The binary files (.z) that begins with the prefix "dejavu" have been extracted from the DejaVu fonts 2.33 (Bitstream) collection. For the details of Copyright, License and other information, please check the files inside the directory fonts/dejavu-fonts-ttf-2.33 Link : http://dejavu-fonts.org

The binary files (.z) that begins with the prefix "ae" have been extracted from the Arabeyes.org collection (GNU-GPLv2). Link : http://projects.arabeyes.org/

ICC profile:

TCPDF includes the sRGB.icc profile from the icc-profiles-free Debian package: https://packages.debian.org/source/stable/icc-profiles-free

Getting started

First, you need to install all development dependencies using Composer:

$ curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
$ mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer

This project include a Makefile that allows you to test and build the project with simple commands. To see all available options:

make help

To install all the development dependencies:

make build_dev

Running all tests

Before committing the code, please check if it passes all tests using

make qa_all

this generates the phpunit coverage report in target/coverage. Please check if the tests are covering all code.

Generate the documentation:

make docs

Generate static analysis reports in target/report:

make reports

Other make options allows you to install this library globally and build an RPM package. Please check all the available options using make help.

Example

Examples are located in the example directory.

Start a development server (requires PHP 5.4) using the command:

make server

and point your browser to http://localhost:8000/index.php

Installation

Create a composer.json in your projects root-directory:

{
    "require": {
        "tecnickcom/tc-lib-pdf": "dev-master"
    },
    "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "vcs",
            "url": "git@github.com:tecnickcom/tc-lib-pdf.git"
        }
    ]
}

Packaging

This library is mainly intended to be used and included in other PHP projects using Composer. However, since some production environments dictates the installation of any application as RPM or DEB packages, this library includes make targets for building these packages (make rpm and make deb). The packages are generated under the target directory.

When this library is installed using an RPM or DEB package, you can use it your code by including the autoloader:

require_once ('/usr/share/php/Com/Tecnick/Barcode/autoload.php');

NOTE: Updated RPM and Debian packages of this library can be downloaded from: https://bintray.com/tecnickcom
