DOMPDF Wrapper for Laravel

Laravel wrapper for Dompdf HTML to PDF Converter

Or use the facade:

    $pdf = PDF::loadView('pdf.invoice', $data);
    return $pdf->download('invoice.pdf');

You can chain the methods:

    return PDF::loadFile(public_path().'/myfile.html')->save('/path-to/my_stored_file.pdf')->stream('download.pdf');
