Note: pdfjs_viewer-rails is still in early development. Please report if you encounter any issues along the way.
This gem ships with three viewer styles:
Using the mountable Engine
The mountable engine makes it extremely simple to integrate the PDF.js viewer into your application:
mount :::: => "/pdfjs", as: 'pdfjs'
Now you can use a link in your templates to open up the viewer:
<%= link_to "display using the full viewer", pdfjs.full_path(file: "/sample.pdf") %> <%= link_to "display using the minimal viewer", pdfjs.minimal_path(file: "/sample.pdf") %>
Using the helper
If your integration scenario is more complex you may want to consider using the
pdfjs_viewer helper. This allows you to embed the viewer into a container like
<%= pdfjs_viewer pdf_url: "/sample.pdf", style: :full %> <%= pdfjs_viewer pdf_url: "/sample.pdf", style: :minimal %>
NOTE: The helper will render a full HTML document and should not be used in a layout.
Tests can be executed with:
$ bundle exec rake
This will render the sample.pdf using phantomjs and save screenshots into
