WebViewer - React sample

WebViewer is a powerful JavaScript-based PDF Library that's part of the PDFTron PDF SDK. It provides a slick out-of-the-box responsive UI that interacts with the core library to view, annotate and manipulate PDFs that can be embedded into any web project.

WebViewer UI

This repo is specifically designed for any users interested in integrating WebViewer into React project. You can watch a video here to help you get started.

Demo

You can explore all of the functionality in our showcase.

Initial setup

Before you begin, make sure your development environment includes Node.js.

Install

git clone https://github.com/PDFTron/webviewer-react-sample.git
cd webviewer-react-sample
npm install

Run

npm start

After the app starts, you will be able to see WebViewer running on localhost:3000.

Build

Run npm run build to build the project. The build artifacts will be stored in the build/ directory. See the section about deployment for more information.

To test the build directory locally you can use serve or http-server. In case of serve, by default it strips the .html extension stripped from paths. We added serve.json configuration to disable cleanUrls option.

GitHub Pages

You can deploy your app to GitHub Pages. To do so, make sure to update paths accordingly, for example, to deploy on pdftron.github.io/webviewer-react-sample, modify the path:

WebViewer(
 {
   path: '/webviewer-react-sample/webviewer/lib',
   initialDoc: '/webviewer-react-sample/files/PDFTRON_about.pdf',
 },
 viewer.current,
).then((instance) => {
