Web app - PDF Viewer / editor

Hi team,

I have an idea in mind for a web based pdf viewer / editor app, which I think could be a very useful tool in my line of work. Essentially I want to set up a website that will allow users to submit a PDF file and if necessary view and modify the document they’ve submitted. Modifications will be limited to deleting and adding pages throughout the existing document.

I’m fairly novice, but have done a little coding for fun in the past, along with a single intro programming course at uni.

Where do I start?
Do I need to start from scratch or is there some existing software out there that I could leverage?
Is this challenge a bit ambitious for a beginner like me?

Any advice would be great.

Cheers people :smile:

I would say, google for opensource pdf web viewers / modifiers and check out their GitHub ;).
