Earlier this month, after being motivated by Thomas Steiner, I went through the not-really-a-hassle process of publishing <table-sort> to NPM. (Table-Sorter Available Via NPM ) Today I've done the same for another web component, <pdf-embed>.

This component wraps Adobe's PDF Embed API, which, honestly, isn't an API, but a JavaScript library to embed PDFs inline with the rest of your document.

Given this HTML:

<pdf-embed url="https://documentservices.adobe.com/view-sdk-demo/PDFs/Bodea Brochure.pdf" 
		   width="100%" height="500px"

Read our cool PDF <a href="https://documentservices.adobe.com/view-sdk-demo/PDFs/Bodea Brochure.pdf">here</a>.


<script src="/js/pdf-embed.js" type="module"></script>

You get:

PDF Embed itself has many different customizations, not all of which are available via the web component, but the best part is that this can be used in a progressively enhanced manner. As you can see in the example above, if the library doesn't load, you still have a way to direct users to your PDF.

You can find it on NPM here: https://www.npmjs.com/package/@raymondcamden/pdf-embed
