Integration JavaScript

For easy PDF Highlighter integration with a website, we have three different JavaScript libraries:

  1. PDF Highlighter JS – Simple integration script, without external dependencies.

  2. PDF Highlighter Lightbox – Advanced integration script able to show highlighted PDF in a lightbox, without user leaving the current page.

  3. jQuery Plugin – The jQuery plugin is our older integration script, basically with the same features as PDF Highlighter JS except it requires jQuery.
