Integrate CloudPDF inside your Angular App

If you already have an Angular project you want to integrate with CloudPDF, then you can simply add the CloudPDF Javascript library as a dependency to your project. Let's walk through all the steps to get CloudPDF integrated into your project!

1. Add CloudPDF as a dependency

Now add CloudPDF as a dependency to your project. Launch the terminal (command prompt or similar on Windows), point it to your project location, and run the following command:

Using Yarn

yarn add @openbook/cloudpdf-viewer

Using NPM

npm install @openbook/cloudpdf-viewer --save

2. Render CloudPDF

import { Component, ViewChild, ElementRef, AfterViewInit } from "@angular/core";
import CloudPdfViewer from "@openbook/cloudpdf-viewer";
@Component({
selector: "app-root",
templateUrl: "./app.component.html",
styleUrls: ["./app.component.css"]
})
export class AppComponent implements AfterViewInit {
@ViewChild("viewer", { static: false }) viewer: ElementRef;
ngAfterViewInit(): void {
CloudPdfViewer(
{
documentId: "eee2079d-b0b6-4267-9812-b6b9eadb9c60",
darkMode: true
},
this.viewer.nativeElement
).then((instance) => {});
}
}
  • documentId After you upload your document to CloudPDF you will receive a documentId. How to upload a document?
  • darkMode You can set the viewer to light or dark mode by changing this variable to true or false

To view all the options go to viewer options

NOTE: In this example we set our document security to public. After uploading a document, the document is by default set on non-public to guarantee security. To view a document that is not public you must first create a signature on your server or you can change the security settings on a document.
