Project Description

We need to read pdf files inside a Windows 8 app which will be published in the Windows Store. We had originally planned to use MuPDF, and thought this could be done easily, because there is a Windows version of this library. However, this version is not compatible with WinRT. We were told it would take a lot of time to make a WinRT compatible version. On the other hand, we recently discovered a project on Github at [url removed, login to view], which seems to have solved the issues related to compiling MuPDF on WinRT. This needs to be checked.

If this is really feasible in a reasonable time and for reasonable money, we would like somebody to create a demo, with a test pdf file being read on WinRT using MuPDF.


This is a difficult project. Do not bid if you are not sure to be able to achieve it.
