Requirements

Installation

  1. Copy source codes from Github or using Composer:
$ composer require dotblue/nette-pdf@~2.0
  1. Register as Configurator's extension:
extensions:
	mpdf: DotBlue\Mpdf\DI\Extension

Configuration

First you need to tell the addon where you store PDF documents' templates.

mpdf:
	templatesDir: %appDir%/templates/pdf

In the app, you usually have several types of PDF documents that you wish to generate. Such type is called theme. Each theme should have its own directory located in templatesDir. You can configure theme via many directives which mPDF supports.

mpdf:
	themes:
		invoice:
			margin:
				left: 20
				right: 20
				top: 20
				bottom: 20

Default settings are following:

encoding: utf-8
img_dpi: 120
size: A4
margin:
	left: 0
	right: 0
	top: 0
	bottom: 0

Each theme has built-in support for external stylesheet. If you put style.css file into theme's directory, it will be automatically bundled into PDF document.

Fonts

Custom fonts can be configured in following way:

fonts:
	roboto:
		R: %appDir%/fonts/Roboto.ttf

Supported types are R (regular), B (bold), I (italic) and BI (bold & italic).

Usage

There is only one service: DotBlue\Mpdf\DocumentFactory. Granted that you have default.latte file in our invoice theme directory, you can create new PDF document like this:

$invoiceDocument = $documentFactory->createPdf('invoice');

Variable $invoiceDocument is instance of DotBlue\Mpdf\Document, which provides simple API for printing or saving, and for linking images. If you would like to save the invoice somewhere on hard drive, you can call saveTo() method.

$invoiceDocument->saveTo(__DIR__ . '/invoice.pdf');

Or you can show document to user in browser:

$invoiceDocument->printPdf();

Variants

Theme can support more variants. Actually method createPdf() has second optional argument, and its default value is default.latte. By changing this, your theme can support many variants either of type or for example of localization.

As third argument you can pass array of directives right for mPDF, which will override your theme default settings.

No release at this moment. Try to create first one.

Is this addon outdated? Did you find an issue? Please report it.
