Preview attachments

This addon allows to preview attachments supported by http://viewerjs.org.

Currently, that’s most Libreoffice files and PDFs.

For filetype recognition, you’ll get the best results by installing python-magic:

sudo apt-get install python-magic


The module adds a little print preview icon right of download links for attachments or binary fields. When a preview is opened from the attachments menu it’s shown next to the form view. From this screen you can navigate through the attachments using the arrow buttons. Using the pop-out button next to the navigational buttons you can open the preview in a separate window.
