A PDF website

I noticed it's possible to have hyper-links in a PDF document
and nowadays, PDF's open right in the same browser window.
(Is it because JavaScript has gotten this strong?
It's not only doable but just plain better security.)
So I thought you could just as well have a dynamic website with PDF (and PostScript) instead of HTML!

But what library or framework to use? (Other than xxm, that is.)
Nààh, we're all into rolling our own PDF's. Because we can.
Fonts in PDF/PostScript are still a bit of a mystery to me,
but page objects like annotations with a link action are not.

This is a proof-of-concept only and (currently?) serves no other purpose.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
