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 8 application.

composer require barryvdh/laravel-dompdf

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


'providers' => [




'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 8 will use those sender details on email. So you can simply add as like following.










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.



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.



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 HDTuto.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"])


->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:


<!DOCTYPE html>






<h1>{{ $title }}</h1>

<p>{{ $body }}</p>

<p>Thank you</p>
