PHP library containing PDF font methods and utilities.

The initial source code has been derived from TCPDF.

Getting started

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

$ curl -sS | 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 deps

Running all tests

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

make qa

All artifacts are generated in the target directory.

To generate the default fonts you can use the command:

make fonts

The files are generated inside the target/fonts folder. Please check the util/convert.php and util/bulk_convert.php to manually convert fonts.


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

    "require": {
        "tecnickcom/tc-lib-pdf-font": "^2.0"

Or add to an existing project with:

composer require tecnickcom/tc-lib-pdf-font ^2.0

Font conversion

To import fonts in bulk, please check the convert program in resources/cli.


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/Pdf/Font/autoload.php');
