composer require barryvdh/laravel-dompdf

After successfully install package, open config/app.php file and add service provider and alias.

config/app.php

'providers' => [

....

Barryvdh\DomPDF\ServiceProvider::class,

],

'aliases' => [

....

'PDF' => Barryvdh\DomPDF\Facade::class,

]

Step 3: Add Route

In this is step we need to create routes for items listing. so open your "routes/web.php" file and add following route.

routes/web.php

Route::get('generate-pdf','PDFController@generatePDF');

app/Http/Controllers/PDFController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use PDF;

class PDFController extends Controller

{

/**

* Display a listing of the resource.

*

* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response

*/

public function generatePDF()

{

$data = ['title' => 'Welcome to ItSolutionStuff.com'];

$pdf = PDF::loadView('myPDF', $data);

return $pdf->download('itsolutionstuff.pdf');

}

}

Step 5: Create View File

In Last step, let's create myPDF.blade.php(resources/views/myPDF.blade.php) for layout of pdf file and put following code:

resources/views/myPDF.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<head>

<title>Hi</title>

</head>

<body>

<h1>Welcome to ItSolutionStuff.com - {{ $title }}</h1>

<p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod
