How should I do to make a document viewable on a webpage, that is exported from SP2013 document library. A user should be able to, through a webpage send a request to view the content of a specific document. .DOC .PDF for example.

My searches so far has pointed me towards REST and JSON.

Would really appreciate someone pointing me at the right direction.

Maybe I should convert the file to binary, send it GET it to the Webapp with REST and compile it to a file there. Presenting it in a view with javascript. Thoughts? – Skaft Apr 26 '13 at 12:45
