    Hi all!

    The document component is okay for parsing PDF files, but could it be made better? There are hardly any controls or somesuch. Can I choose what third-party plugin handles these documents? Images are handled by lightbox – is there a similar thing for the doc component?

    Hey Boris,

    We’ve used Google PDF displayer in the past, but now we use PDFObject to embed PDFs. Currently these two are the only plausible solutions.

    Does this mean the choice is mine, or is it something you devs went for?

    Boris,
    There is no other technology available to display PDF’s on the web. You can either display it through Google’s free PDF viewer, or you can utilize PDF Object. If there were other options we’d happily look into them. Feel free to search on your own but you’ll find the same result that we did.
