How To Generate A PDF from HTML in Laravel 11

Hello ,
I was trying to generate a PDF payment receipt for my SAAS application and when i search for a method, i found a simple solution.
Here i am sharing how i able to make it work.

can generate and download a PDF receipt in Laravel using the dompdf/dompdf package. First, make sure you have the barryvdh/laravel-dompdf package installed. You can install it via Composer:

composer require barryvdh/laravel-dompdf


Now, create a route in your web.php file:

you can add the function to any of your controller but here in reference i use ReceiptController

use App\Http\Controllers\ReceiptController;

Route::get('/receipt/{id}', [ReceiptController::class, 'generateReceipt']);


Inside your controller you can use this code

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use PDF;

class ReceiptController extends Controller
    public function generateReceipt($id)
        // Fetch payment details from the database using the ID
        // For example, assuming you have a Payment model:
        // $payment = Payment::find($id);

        // Dummy data for the example
        $payment = [
            'id' => $id,
            'name' => 'Ajith',
            'amount' => 5000,
            'date' => date('Y-m-d'),
            'description' => 'Payment for services rendered'

        // Generate PDF
        $pdf = PDF::loadView('receipt', compact('payment'));

        // Download PDF
        return $pdf->download('receipt.pdf');

Next, create the receipt.blade.php view file in the resources/views directory:

<!DOCTYPE html>
        body {
            font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
        .container {
            width: 80%;
            margin: 0 auto;
        .header, .footer {
            text-align: center;
        .content {
            margin-top: 20px;
        .details {
            width: 100%;
            border-collapse: collapse;
        .details th, .details td {
            border: 1px solid #000;
            padding: 10px;
            text-align: left;
    <div class="container">
        <div class="header">
            <p>Receipt ID: {{ $payment['id'] }}</p>
        <div class="content">
            <table class="details">
                    <td>{{ $payment['name'] }}</td>
                    <td>{{ $payment['amount'] }}</td>
                    <td>{{ $payment['date'] }}</td>
                    <td>{{ $payment['description'] }}</td>
        <div class="footer">
            <p>Thank you for your payment!</p>


This code sets up a basic receipt generation and download system in Laravel. When you access the /receipt/{id} route, it will generate a PDF receipt based on the provided payment details and download it. Make sure to replace the dummy payment data with actual data from your database as needed.
