We’re looking to use pdf.js with Omeka. Much simpler than the Universal Viewer plugin, which we found a real hassle to install. Got pdf.js working in DEV. All that needs doing is to copy the pdf.js files into a folder within Omeka. Then use the iframe tag in either Item or Exhibit view to display as required.
We’ve done a fair bit of embedding of 3rd party sites in our version of Omeka. Works great, but risk is that the 3rd party site will go down. This strategy of using embeds from our own Omeka installation seems to trump that strategy.
Has anyone else used pdf.js or similiar ‘non-plugins’ with their version of Omeka? Encountered any problems? I’d love to know also if there is any similiar software that you can just copy across and start embedding just like that.
(And thanks to a colleague for thinking of this great way to use pdf.js).
