A django-filer plugin for PDF file support.
This is a fork of Patrick Toal’s PDF plugin for django-filer. Currently this app does only provide a PDF icon for PDF-files. But maybe more features are added to make the originally intended features happen. Contributions are welcome ;-)
To get started using django-filer-pdf simply install it with pip:
$ pip install django-filer-pdf
Add "filer_pdf" to your project’s INSTALLED_APPS setting and run syncdb or migrate.
This app extends django-filer by adding the following features for PDF files:
- Thumbnail generation for the first page of PDF documents.
- Text extraction from PDF for indexing by search engines ( eg: Haystack )
