PDF comparison tool


(rajee) #1

Hi All,

I am looking for a tool that will not only compare the text in a PDF but also the GUI of the PDF… Usually it would compare the previous version to the current version. Is there any existing framework ? I need this to run continuously in the pipeline and report the failures on some CI tool like bamboo or Jenkins and report any failures using pro differences in the screenshot. Is there any?

Thanks in advance.

Hello @rajee!

I have used Spire to inspect PDFs. As a matter of risk, I favor inspecting the text directly rather than scraping it from the PDF. If you have requirements to inspect the appearance of the PDF, I recommend a manual inspection.
