In this example, I will simply use dompdf to generate a pdf file and send a mail with a pdf attachment. you just need to follow a few steps to create a simple example of send mail with created pdf file in laravel app.

Let's see bellow steps:

Step 1: Install Laravel

I am going to explain step by step from scratch so, we need to get fresh Laravel application using bellow command, So open your terminal OR command prompt and run bellow command:

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel blog

Step 2: Install dompdf Package

first of all we will install barryvdh/laravel-dompdf composer package by following composer command in your laravel application.

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: Make Configuration

In first step, you have to add send mail configuration with mail driver, mail host, mail port, mail username, mail password so laravel will use those sender details on email. So you can simply add as like following.

.env

MAIL_DRIVER=smtp

MAIL_HOST=smtp.gmail.com

MAIL_PORT=587

MAIL_USERNAME=mygoogle@gmail.com

MAIL_PASSWORD=rrnnucvnqlbsl

MAIL_ENCRYPTION=tls

MAIL_FROM_ADDRESS=mygoogle@gmail.com

MAIL_FROM_NAME="${APP_NAME}"

Step 4: 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

<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

use App\Http\Controllers\PDFController;

/*

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

| Web Routes

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

|

| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These

| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which

| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!

|

*/

Route::get('send-email-pdf', [PDFController::class, 'index']);

Step 5: Add Controller

Here,we require to create new controller PDFController that will manage index method of route. So let's put bellow code.

app/Http/Controllers/PDFController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use PDF;

use Mail;

class PDFController extends Controller

{

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function index()

{

$data["email"] = "aatmaninfotech@gmail.com";

$data["title"] = "From ItSolutionStuff.com";

$data["body"] = "This is Demo";

$pdf = PDF::loadView('emails.myTestMail', $data);

Mail::send('emails.myTestMail', $data, function($message)use($data, $pdf) {

$message->to($data["email"], $data["email"])

->subject($data["title"])

->attachData($pdf->output(), "text.pdf");

});

dd('Mail sent successfully');

}

}

Step 6: Create View File

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

resources/views/emails/myTestMail.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<head>
