Revert 'Remove almost all usages of CFX_FixedBufGrow with std::vector' This is a manual revert of the CL at: https://pdfium-review.googlesource.com/c/pdfium/+/32159 The only file manually changed was cpdf_renderstatus.cpp Reason for revert: the bug below shows that sometimes the vector size used is larger than the parameter given to CFX_FixedBufGrow. Thus, we will revert, then add vectors using std::max unless it's clear from the code that the code will never access indices outside.

Get the chromium depot tools via the instructions at http://www.chromium.org/developers/how-tos/install-depot-tools (this provides the gclient utility needed below).
Also install Python, Subversion, and Git and make sure they're in your path.
PDFium uses the same build tool as Chromium:
Please refer to Chromium's Visual Studio set up for requirements and instructions on build environment configuration.
set DEPOT_TOOLS_WIN_TOOLCHAIN=0, or set that variable in your global environment.
Compilation is done through ninja, not Visual Studio.
The default architecture for Windows, Linux, and Mac is “
x64”. On Windows, “
x86” is also supported. GN parameter “
target_cpu = "x86"” can be used to override the default value. If you specify Android build, the default CPU architecture will be “
It is expected that there are still some places lurking in the code which will not function properly on big-endian architectures. Bugs and/or patches are welcome, however providing this support is not a priority at this time.
download_from_google_storage --config and follow the authentication instructions. Note that you must authenticate with your @google.com credentials. Enter “0” if asked for a project-id.
Once you've done this, the toolchain will be installed automatically for you in the Generate the build files step below.
The toolchain will be in
depot_tools\win_toolchain\vs_files\<hash>, and windbg can be found in
If you want the IDE for debugging and editing, you will need to install it separately, but this is optional and not needed for building PDFium.
The name of the top-level directory does not matter. In our examples, we use “repo”. This directory must not have been used before by
gclient config as each directory can only house a single gclient configuration.
mkdir repo cd repo gclient config --unmanaged https://pdfium.googlesource.com/pdfium.git gclient sync cd pdfium
Additional build dependencies need to be installed by running:
We use GN to generate the build files and Ninja to execute the build files. Both of these are included with the depot_tools checkout.
Configuration is done by executing
gn args <directory> to configure the build. This will launch an editor in which you can set the following arguments. A typical
<directory> name is
Note, you must set
pdf_is_standalone = true if you want the sample applications like
pdfium_test to build.
When complete the arguments will be stored in
<directory>/args.gn, and GN will automatically use the new arguments to generate build files. Should your files fail to generate, please double-check that you have set use_sysroot as indicated above.
You can build the sample program by running:
ninja -C <directory> pdfium_test You can build the entire product (which includes a few unit tests) by running:
ninja -C <directory> pdfium_all.
The pdfium_test program supports reading, parsing, and rasterizing the pages of a .pdf file to .ppm or .png output image files (windows supports two other formats). For example:
<directory>/pdfium_test --ppm path/to/myfile.pdf. Note that this will write output images to
There are currently several test suites that can be run:
It is possible the tests in the
testing directory can fail due to font differences on the various platforms. These tests are reliable on the bots. If you see failures, it can be a good idea to run the tests on the tip-of-tree checkout to see if the same failures appear.
Code coverage reports for PDFium can be generated in Linux development environments. Details can be found here.
Valgrind and other profiling tools do not work correctly with the standard build setup that PDFium uses. You will need to add
args.gn to get symbols to correctly appear.
The current health of the source tree can be found at http://build.chromium.org/p/client.pdfium/console
There are several mailing lists that are setup:
Note, the Reviews and Bugs lists are typically read-only.
We use this bug tracker, but for security bugs, please use [Chromium's security bug template] (https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/entry?template=Security%20Bug) and add the “Cr-Internals-Plugins-PDF” label.
For contributing code, we will follow Chromium's process as much as possible. The main exceptions are:
