1. Problem description

I have in github repository PDF and I'd like to display it in browser.

Is there a way to do it like with java file, when we display it as raw file it seems to work fine eg: 

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dirask/dirask-tutorials/master/dirask-tutorials-java/src/main/java/com/dirask/Main.java

but when we do it with PDF file we are forced to downlaod it like this:

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dirask/dirask-tutorials/master/dirask-tutorials-java/src/main/java/com/dirask/java_coding_convention/Java_Coding_Style_Guide.pdf

2. Solution

  1. We can solve this problem with Google Docs viewer
    https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=here_goes_link_to_our_github_raw_pdf_file
  2. Example

    https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dirask/dirask-tutorials/master/dirask-tutorials-java/src/main/java/com/dirask/java_coding_convention/Java_Coding_Style_Guide.pdf
  3. Link from above example:
