As of Tiki19, ViewerJS, which includes WebODF, will no longer be supported because no significant work has been done since 2015

For PDF viewing, we will start using code directly from Mozilla's PDF.js, and installable via Packages.

For ODF viewing, we will start using code directly from the Wodo text editor (WebODF), and installable via Packages.


ViewerJS

As of Tiki 15.0 (also backported to 14.2 and 12.5 ) support has been added for ViewerJS.

ViewerJS can already natively show both PDF files and many types of Office files stored in OpenDocument Format, the open standard for office documents. ODF is available by default in almost any modern office applications such as Microsoft Office, LibreOffice, Apache OpenOffice and Calligra Suite. Because it is built on modern web technologies, ViewerJS understands embedded fonts, so your documents look pretty everywhere.

Install

Assuming:

  • Site address is http://tiki15.docker
  • Document root path is /var/www/html
  • Database name is tiki15
  • For this example we will use PluginMediaPlayer.


Getting and unpacking viewerjs

1. Get viewerjs
curl -o /tmp/viewejs.zip \
    http://viewerjs.org/releases/ViewerJS-latest.zip


2. Unzip content on Tiki installation
unzip /tmp/viewejs.zip \
    -d /var/www/html/files


3. Fix folder name
mv /var/www/html/files/viewerjs-0.5.8 \
    /var/www/html/files/viewerjs


4. Remove uneeded zip file
rm /tmp/viewejs.zip



Setting up Tiki

Remembering, for this example we will use PluginMediaPlayer.

Activate ViewerJS


1. Go to "File Galleries" admin page (http://tiki15.docker/tiki-admin.php?page=fgal)
2. Click on "Enhancements" Tab
3. On "Access" section check the option "Use Viewer JS"
4. Click on "Apply" button

1. Load credentials
eval $(sed -n '/^\$/s/^\$//p' /var/www/html/db/local.php)


2. Setup new preferences
mysql -u$user_tiki -p$pass_tiki -h$host_tiki $dbs_tiki << EOF
INSERT INTO tiki_preferences VALUES
    ('fgal_viewerjs_feature', 'y')
    ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE value='y';
INSERT INTO tiki_preferences VALUES
    ('fgal_viewerjs_uri', 'files/viewerjs/ViewerJS/index.html')
    ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE value='files/viewerjs/ViewerJS/index.html';
EOF

1. Go to toolbar edit page (http://tiki15.docker/tiki-admin_toolbars.php)
2. On section "Plugin Tools" locate and drag "mediaplayer" to section "Row 1"
3. Click on "Save" button


Usage

You can use ViewerJS through the File Gallery, or through PluginMediaplayer or through PluginIframe, but remembering, for this example we will use PluginMediaPlayer.

1. Go to File Galleries upload page (http://tiki15.docker/tiki-upload_file.php)
2. Select any PDF you want
3. Click on "Upload" button
4. Write down the file ID (Let's suppose ID is 1)
5. Edit any page you want (eg.: http://tiki15.docker/tiki-editpage.php?page=HomePage)
6. On editor toolbar, click on button with "Play" icon
7. On "URL" field, type "tiki-download_file.php?fileId=1", where 1 is the file ID
