When using the standalone deployment, opening documents require additional loading time (necessary to download and compile the WebAssembly or asm.js code). The absence of a server component makes it easier to integrate this solution and allows you to rapidly deploy it into your existing website. PDF documents and annotations need to be persisted on your server – to help with this process, we developed Instant JSON – a small layer that includes only the changes to a PDF file and thus avoids to transfer the PDF file, whenever your users make changes.
- Workload is offloaded to clients
- Runs in contexts where no server is available
