We can create PDF file using PHP easily. I choose mPDF in order to do this. Why mPDF ? That because the method is to use html string for writing PDF content and then produce PDF as an output.
We can format PDF content like an HTML page i.e using bold <b/>, table <table/>, etc which is easy for Web developer off course.
PHP.Net has own recommended PDF creation class which are Haru PDF and PDFLib. They are great but many lines and methods to do simple ‘Hello World’ example. I feel easier using mPDF since it uses HTML string.
This blog post will demonstrate how to install and gives some basic examples so reader can have brief ideas how to create PDF programmatically.
