Download the PHP package dompdf/dompdf without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package dompdf/dompdf. It is possible to download/install these versions without Composer. Possible dependencies are resolved automatically.


After the download, you have to make one include require_once('vendor/autoload.php');. After that you have to import the classes with use statements.

If you use only one package a project is not needed. But if you use more then one package, without a project it is not possible to import the classes with use statements.

In general, it is recommended to use always a project to download your libraries. In an application normally there is more than one library needed.
Some PHP packages are not free to download and because of that hosted in private repositories. In this case some credentials are needed to access such packages. Please use the auth.json textarea to insert credentials, if a package is coming from a private repository. You can look here for more information.

  • Some hosting areas are not accessible by a terminal or SSH. Then it is not possible to use Composer.
  • To use Composer is sometimes complicated. Especially for beginners.
  • Composer needs much resources. Sometimes they are not available on a simple webspace.
  • If you are using private repositories you don't need to share your credentials. You can set up everything on our site and then you provide a simple download link to your team member.
  • Simplify your Composer build process. Use our own command line tool to download the vendor folder as binary. This makes your build process faster and you don't need to expose your credentials for private repositories.
Please rate this library. Is it a good library?

Dompdf is an HTML to PDF converter

At its heart, dompdf is (mostly) a CSS 2.1 compliant HTML layout and rendering engine written in PHP. It is a style-driven renderer: it will download and read external stylesheets, inline style tags, and the style attributes of individual HTML elements. It also supports most presentational HTML attributes.

This document applies to the latest stable code which may not reflect the current release. For released code please navigate to the appropriate tag.

About Fonts & Character Encoding

PDF documents internally support the following fonts: Helvetica, Times-Roman, Courier, Zapf-Dingbats, & Symbol. These fonts only support Windows ANSI encoding. In order for a PDF to display characters that are not available in Windows ANSI, you must supply an external font. Dompdf will embed any referenced font in the PDF so long as it has been pre-loaded or is accessible to dompdf and reference in CSS @font-face rules. See the font overview for more information on how to use fonts.

The DejaVu TrueType fonts have been pre-installed to give dompdf decent Unicode character coverage by default. To use the DejaVu fonts reference the font in your stylesheet, e.g. body { font-family: DejaVu Sans; } (for DejaVu Sans). The following DejaVu 2.34 fonts are available: DejaVu Sans, DejaVu Serif, and DejaVu Sans Mono.
