Easily Optimize PDFs in Laravel with the Optimizer Package image

This PDF Optimizer package for PHP and Laravel applications for effortless optimization and compression of PDF files. PDF Optimizer utilizes Ghostscript to significantly reduce PDF file sizes. The PDF Optimizer package can be used in any PHP project but also offers Laravel-specific APIs that streamline working with PDF file optimization:

use Mostafaznv\PdfOptimizer\Laravel\Facade\PdfOptimizer;
use Mostafaznv\PdfOptimizer\Enums\ColorConversionStrategy;
use Mostafaznv\PdfOptimizer\Enums\PdfSettings;
 
$result = PdfOptimizer::fromDisk('local')
->open('input-1.pdf')
->toDisk('s3')
->settings(PdfSettings::SCREEN)
->colorConversionStrategy(
ColorConversionStrategy::DEVICE_INDEPENDENT_COLOR
)
->colorImageResolution(50)
->optimize('output-1.pdf');
 
 
dd($result->status, $result->message);

Another useful Laravel-specific feature is the ability to queue the optimization of your files:

use Mostafaznv\PdfOptimizer\Laravel\Facade\PdfOptimizer;
 
$result = PdfOptimizer::fromDisk('minio')
->open('input.pdf')
->toDisk('files')
->onQueue()
->optimize('output.pdf');

Other key features this package offers:

Fluent Method Chaining: Experience the elegance of a fluent and expressive API that seamlessly optimizes PDF files. Harness the power of nearly all Ghostscript options with ease.

Logger Support: Capture detailed logs to gain profound insights into the intricacies of the optimization process. Stay informed and in control with the integrated logger.

Customization: Tailor the optimization process to your exact needs. pdf-optimizer provides a customizable solution, allowing you to fine-tune your PDF optimization experience.

Laravel Integration: Specifically designed for Laravel applications, pdf-optimizer supports diverse input methods, including file paths, UploadedFile instances, and disk storage. This guarantees flexibility and user-friendly integration within the Laravel ecosystem.

Queue Support: Elevate your optimization process with asynchronous PDF file optimization using Laravel queues. pdf-optimizer seamlessly integrates with Laravel's queue system, ensuring efficient background processing.

You can get started with this package by checking out the official PDF Optimizer documentation; the source code is also available on GitHub at mostafaznv/pdf-optimizer.
