Test cases for pdf2htmlEX

For a long time pdf2htmlEX has been lack of test cases, which is terrible, you won't know whether your tiny changes to the code would break some existing features.

Now I'm trying to make that a history. A new repo has been set up at GitHub:

https://github.com/coolwanglu/pdf2htmlEX-tests

This is still in early stage, which is highly experimental, and the interface might be changed in the future. But this is really a good time for you to submit your test cases, just to make sure that you file will be always rendered correctly in future releases of pdf2htmlEX!

Please tell me what you think about it such that I can improve it.

Thank you!

I'm back!

In recently replies on GitHub, I mentioned that I would have access to my build environment later, which is, now!

Let me explain what I can test:
  • Building on Ubuntu
  • Rendering on Windows
  • Rendering on Mac OS X
  • Rendering on Android (phone)


And I cannot test anything that is not in the list. I do have an iPad 1G though, which seems to be too old for now. It just lag for almost every pages produced by pdf2htmlEX, while it seems that recent iPad generations are fast enough to render them.


Recent TODO list:
  • Give another try packaging FontForge for PPA
  • Fix some small issues
  • New version!
