Generating PDF with fuelPHP is very straight forward using the built in wrappers around TCPDF or DOMPDF (my preferred choice)
First things, configure fuel to use pdf
To generate a PDF with fuelPHP:
$data[‘quote’] = Model_Quote::find($id);
$view = View::forge(‘quotes/print’, $data, false);
$pdf = Pdf::factory(‘dompdf’)->init();
In View file, in views/quotes/print is just plain old HTML and CSS. DOMPDF does a great job of outputting very well formatted PDFs from proper markup.
