Is it possible to render file formats .pdf and .doc in Bitbucket server?

It is not possible to get a view on files of type .doc(x) and .pdf in the Bitbucket viewer.
You will get the message "This file cannot be rendered in your browser.

Is this something that can be solved? With plugins?

Hi,

There is indeed an API for this: "bitbucket/feature/files/file-handlers". See https://developer.atlassian.com/bitbucket/server/docs/latest/reference/javascript/bitbucket_feature_files_file-handlers.html for the API documentation and https://bitbucket.org/atlassian/stash-stl-plugin for an example plug-in that renders STL files.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,

Michael

I'm (also) looking for an add-on that has functionality out of the box for this.

There is only one in the Marketplace, but that one is for Bitbucket cloud. There is one from Atlassian Labs, but you have to build and install it yourself from here: https://bitbucket.org/atlassianlabs/stash-pdf-viewer-plugin

Hi,

 

The following resources contain useful suggestions for both file types:

- for PDF files: PDF file comparison

- for doc(x) files: Diff Microsoft Word (docx) documents

 

Cheers,
