Including PDF Document Importer

The format of the certificate was not according to the requirements. The certificate was a simple HTML form with only two colors used. So it was decided to generate a colored certificate in pdf format.
But got another problem. First the pdf is to be loaded as a simple template and then candidate’s name is to be written over it.
After searching, it was found that fpdf and fpdi can be used for it.
FPDF is a PHP class which allows to generate PDF files with pure PHP, that is to say without using the PDFlib library. F from FPDF stands for Free: you may use it for any kind of usage and modify it to suit your needs.
FPDI is a tool that lets you import an existing PDF document as a template for generating another PDF document with FPDF. Put simply: it generates PDF files based on an existing PDF template.
