Overview

The "hello world" example is a minimalistic application of the PDF.js project. The file helloworld.pdf originates from the GNUpdf project and contains a simple and human-readable PDF.

Getting started

Instead of simply opening index.html in a browser, you must serve the page using a web server. This can be done on your local machine without an internet connection. In the root directory of PDF.js, run gulp server in a terminal. The example can then be viewed using the following URL:

http://localhost:8888/examples/helloworld/index.html

Take a look at hello.js to see how to make basic calls to PDF.js.
