How to make your own FlipBook for free!

Okay ever thought of making your own flipbook? Here is a way of doing it for free. 1. Go to 2. If you don't already have an account there you will need to sign up. It is free but I suggest you also use 2 factor authentification to help with extra security. 3. Now you can do two things, either download the code if you have your own webhost, or you can fork the GitHub code. 4. Once you either upload and unzip the folder into your webhost, or forked the github, you need to upload your PDF document. 5. Go to the folder pdfjs and open the file viewer.js 6. On line 30 (or you can do a search) change the following line:   var DEFAULT_URL = "compressed.tracemonkey-pldi-09.pdf" ; Replace the string inside the quotation marks with the file name or your PDF. If you had forked it on GitHub you will need to make a GitHub Page. This is easily done. Go to Settings. Scroll down to GitHub Pages then choose Master from the drop down list.
