I am building a mobile app and I am looking for an open source html5 document viewer. Something that will take word, excel, powerpoint etc and turn then into html5 so users can view on their mobile devices.

I am looking for something free or really cheap that will work for iOS and Android.
Like Box View (Crocodoc), but open source.

I don't know of an exact solution, but you might be able to research how Trello implemented something similar. I noticed that they back document attachments on cards with Google Docs as storage and/or a viewer.

Edit: It appears that they store on AWS S3 and link to the Google Drive viewer.
