ViewerJs (module for Omeka S)
. Supported formats are:
- Portable document format (pdf)
- OpenDocument Text (odt, fodt)
- OpenDocument Spreadsheet (ods, fods)
- OpenDocument Presentation (odp, fodp)
Common multimedia formats can be managed too, if they are displayable by the browser. They are not enabled by default, because they are natively managed by Omeka S.
- Images (jpg, png, gif)
- Audio/video (via html5)
Concretely, it includes the
ViewerJS library, that integrates the pdf
library of Mozilla
pdf.js and the standard office formats via
images and the audio/video are displayed via the browser itself.
Note: for office documents, the bigger they are, the bigger should be the computer of the visitor to display them.

the module to
ViewerJs, and go to the root module, and run:

npm update gulp
- Note about WebODF
Because the standards of the Document Foundation are "simple" and easy to
manage, the library
WebODF is mainly a stylesheet. And because this is a true
standard, it is sustainable, stable and available to anyone. So it’s recommended
for any office work.
All resources of Omeka S that are in pdf, odt, fodt, ods, fods, odp, fodp, and txt are automatically displayed by the ViewerJs, so you have nothing to do.
Options can be set differently for the admin board or each site. Only one option is available directly: the styles of the iframe. Other ones are managed via the rendered.
To display the media (images, audio, video) via the ViewerJS, copy and adapt the
config/module.config.php in your
To display the pdf with the more complete viewer provided by the module Pdf Viewer, you need to set its value in your local config too:
'application/pdf' => 'pdfViewer', 'pdf' => 'pdfViewer',
Use it at your own risk.
It’s always recommended to backup your files and your databases and to check your archives regularly so you can roll back if needed.
