In this tutorial, we will use the lara-pdf-merger composer package to create an example. We will also create two routes, GET and POST, and then create a controller file with a blade file. When the user selects multiple PDF files, it will return a single merged file.

So, let's follow a few steps and get an easy example.

Step 1: Install Laravel 10

This is optional; however, if you have not created the laravel app, then you may go ahead and execute the below command:

composer require webklex/laravel-pdfmerger	

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

'providers' => [
'aliases' => [
	'PDFMerger' => Webklex\PDFMerger\Facades\PDFMergerFacade::class,
Step 3: Create Routes

In this is step we need to create routes for display form. 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('merge-pdf', [PDFController::class, 'index']);
Route::post('merge-pdf', [PDFController::class, 'store'])->name('');	
Step 4: Create Controller

Here,we require to create new controller PDFController that will manage get and post method of route. So let's put bellow code.

namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\View\View;
use Webklex\PDFMerger\Facades\PDFMergerFacade as PDFMerger;
class PDFController extends Controller
     * Show the application dashboard.
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
    public function index(): View
        return view('mergePDF');
     * Show the application dashboard.
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
    public function store(Request $request)
        $this->validate($request, [
                'filenames' => 'required',
                'filenames.*' => 'mimes:pdf'
            $pdf = PDFMerger::init();
            foreach ($request->file('filenames') as $key => $value) {
                $pdf->addPDF($value->getPathName(), 'all');
            $fileName = time().'.pdf';
        return response()->download(public_path($fileName));

          @foreach ($errors->all() as $error)
              <li>{{ $error }}</li>
    <h3 class="well">Laravel Merge Multiple PDF Files Example</h3>
    <form method="post" action="{{ route('') }}" enctype="multipart/form-data">
