Integrating dompdf
#1

(This post was last modified: 05-03-2020, 03:04 AM by rmilecki.)

I want to try using dompdf for generating PDFs. It's simpler than TCPDF and wkhtmltopdf so a good choice for me if it works good enough.

I downloaded it to app/ThirdParty/ and in Autoload.php I added it to $psr4:
PHP Code:
$psr4 = [
    
'App'         => APPPATH,                // To ensure filters, etc still found,
    
APP_NAMESPACE => APPPATH,                // For custom namespace
    
'Config'      => APPPATH 'Config',
    
'Dompdf'      => APPPATH 'ThirdParty/dompdf/src',
]; 

Trying to use it:
PHP Code:
$dompdf = new \Dompdf\Dompdf(); 

results in error though:
Code:
Class 'Dompdf\Cpdf' not found


It seems that dompdf has its own Autoloader.php which has some magic code for handling Dompdf\Cpdf:
https://github.com/dompdf/dompdf/blob/ma...loader.php
but it doesn't work with CodeIgniter 4.

Any hint how to fix that? I don't like using
PHP Code:
require_once APPPATH 'ThirdParty' DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR 'dompdf' DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR 'autoload.inc.php'

Don't know if this is possible, but you can at least try. Personally I would use it the Composer way. :-)

PHP Code:
$psr4 = [
    
'App'         => APPPATH,                // To ensure filters, etc still found,
    
APP_NAMESPACE => APPPATH,                // For custom namespace
    
'Config'      => APPPATH 'Config',
    
'Dompdf\\Dompdf'      => APPPATH 'ThirdParty/dompdf/src',
    
'Dompdf\\Cpdf'      => APPPATH 'ThirdParty/dompdf/lib',
];

I would suggest you look at MPDF (get it via composer.

Very easy to setup and use. In my opinion the best pdf library as it support html and css.
