PSPDFKit for Web Example – React.js

This example shows how to integrate PSPDFKit for Web into a React app.


Getting Started

Clone the repo.

git clone
cd pspdfkit-web-example-react

Install the pspdfkit npm package.

npm install --save

Bootstrap the project by installing all the other dependencies. In this example we use Create React App.

npm install

Now that everything is installed we need to configure the app to use our PSPDFKit for Web license key.

Open up the package.json file from this repo, find and replace all the occurrences of YOUR_LICENSE_KEY_GOES_HERE with the license key that you received via e-mail.

Running the Example

We are ready to launch the app! 🎉

To run the app in development mode:

npm run start

To create a production build of the app and serve it:

npm run build
serve -s build

Enjoy 🍕

React Component

The React component which implements the PSPDFKit for Web integration can be found at src/components/pspdfkit/index.js.

To run this example via Create React App we also had to configure the baseUrl that PSPDFKit for Web uses to load its artifacts and base css. Please take a look at src/App.js.

In order to make the files above available we had to copy them from the node_modules/pspdfkit/dist folder using a script which you can find at scripts/copy-pspdfkit-files.
