How do I create a PDF file using PHP?

I know it’s an old question, but I figured it makes sense to answer anyway. Warning. shameless product plug below I might be biased here, as I am the Product Owner for a PDF generation library myself, but I think our library is a great option to get going with PDF documents quickly. There are of course a bunch of other solutions on the market, both commercial and open-source, for example, iText, CSharp, PDFSharp, etc. that might work for you as well. With our PDFFlow Library, depending on your knowledge of C# and the complexity of your document, you could get a really well-done PDF done in anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days. We just release a fully rewritten version (2.0.1) which makes it even easier (and quicker) for developers to create documents in code, without knowing all the details of PDFs. The library is free for non-commercial and educational use. And even if you need it for commercial use, you don’t pay for a commercial license until you go to prod, so it’s completely free to give it a try and see if you like it and get some results from it. Give it a try at GS PDF Flow and let us know what you think. I am attaching an example of a recently created sample doc (Airplane boarding pass) and a link to an open-source (Apache 2.0) code example you can download and run in minutes. We have a bunch of open-source examples in our github repo, so feel free to use them for your need. Sorry again for a shameless plug, but I think the library would be of good use to developers looking to create business-oriented PDFs efficiently and affordably (or free, if it’s for educational or non-commercial use).
