Receipt Printing

If you have a receipt printer, you can easily print receipts to it via the Rawilk\Printing\Receipts\ReceiptPrinter. This will generate a string that you can then send to your receipt printer.

// First generate the receipt
$receipt = (string) (new ReceiptPrinter)
    ->centerAlign()
    ->text('My heading')
    ->leftAlign()
    ->line()
    ->twoColumnText('Item 1', '2.00')
    ->twoColumnText('Item 2', '4.00')
    ->feed(2)
    ->centerAlign()
    ->barcode('1234')
    ->cut();

// Now send the string to your receipt printer
Printing::newPrintTask()
    ->printer($receiptPrinterId)
    ->content($text)
    ->send();

If you are using the PrintNode driver, the content will be base64_encoded automatically for you.

More info on the receipt printer can be found in the api reference.
