Samples for the PDF Tools Node.js SDK

This sample project helps you get started with the PDF Tools Node.js SDK.

The sample JS scripts illustrate how to perform PDF-related actions (such as converting to and from the PDF format) using the SDK. Please note that the PDF Tools Node.js SDK supports only server side use cases.

Prerequisites

The sample application has the following requirements:

  • Node.js : Version 10.13 or above. Node installation instructions can be found here.

Authentication Setup

The credentials file and corresponding private key file for the samples is pdftools-api-credentials.json and private.key respectively. Before the samples can be run, replace both the files with the ones present in the downloaded zip file at the end of creation of credentials via Get Started workflow.

The SDK also supports providing the authentication credentials at runtime, without storing them in a config file. Please refer this section to know more.

Quota Exhaustion

If you receive ServiceUsageError during the Samples run, it means that trial credentials have exhausted their usage quota. Please contact us to get paid credentials.

Build with npm

Run the following command to build the project:

npm install

Note that the PDF Tools SDK is listed as a dependency in the package.json and will be downloaded automatically.

A Note on Logging

For logging, this SDK uses the log4js API . Upon running, the SDK searches for a file config/pdftools-sdk-log4js-config.json in the working directory, and reads the logging properties from there. If no configuration file is provided, default logging, i.e. logging INFO logs to the console is enabled. The clients can change the logging settings as per their needs.

Running the samples

The following sub-sections describe how to run the samples. Prior to running the samples, check that the configuration file is set up as described above and that the project has been built.

The samples code is available under the src folder. Test files used by the samples can be found in the resources folder. When executed, all samples create an output child folder under the project root directory to store their results.

Create a PDF File

These samples illustrate how to convert files of some formats to PDF. Refer the sdk documentation of create-pdf-operation.js to see the list of all supported media types which can be converted to PDF.

Create a PDF File From a DOCX File

The sample script create-pdf-from-docx.js creates a PDF file from a DOCX file.

node src/createpdf/create-pdf-from-docx.js

Create a PDF File From a DOCX File with options

The sample script create-pdf-from-docx-with-options.js creates a PDF file from a DOCX file by setting documentLanguage as the language of input file.

node src/createpdf/create-pdf-from-docx-with-options.js

Create a PDF File From a DOCX Readable Stream

The sample script create-pdf-from-docx-stream.js creates a PDF file from a readable DOCX stream.

node src/createpdf/create-pdf-from-docx-stream.js

Create a PDF File From a DOCX File (Write to an OutputStream)

The sample script create-pdf-from-docx-to-output-stream.js creates a PDF file from a DOCX file. Instead of saving the result to a local file, it writes the result to an output stream.

node src/createpdf/create-pdf-from-docx-to-output-stream.js

Create a PDF File From a DOCX File (By providing in-memory Authentication credentials)

The sample script create-pdf-with-inmemory-auth-credentials.js highlights how to provide in-memory auth credentials for performing an operation. This enables the clients to fetch the credentials from a secret server during runtime, instead of storing them in a file.

Before running the sample, authentication credentials need to be updated as per the instructions in the script.

node src/createpdf/create-pdf-with-inmemory-auth-credentials.js

Create a PDF File From a DOCX File(By providing custom value for timeouts)

The sample script create-pdf-with-custom-timeouts highlights how to provide the custom value for connection timeout and read timeout.

node src/createpdf/create-pdf-with-custom-timeouts.js

Create a PDF File From a PPTX File

node src/createpdf/create-pdf-from-pptx.js

Create a PDF File From Static HTML (via Zip Archive)

The sample script create-pdf-from-static-html.js creates a PDF file from a zip file containing the input HTML file and its resources. Please refer the sdk documentation of create-pdf-operation.js to see instructions on the structure of the zip file.

node src/createpdf/create-pdf-from-static-html.js

Create a PDF File From Dynamic HTML (via Zip Archive)

The sample script create-pdf-from-dynamic-html.js converts a zip file, containing the input HTML file and its resources, along with the input data to a PDF file. The input data is used by the javascript in the HTML file to manipulate the HTML DOM, thus effectively updating the source HTML file. This mechanism can be used to provide data to the template HTML dynamically and then, convert it into a PDF file.

node src/createpdf/create-pdf-from-dynamic-html.js

Export PDF To Other Formats

These samples illustrate how to export PDF files to other formats. Refer to the documentation of export-pdf-operation.js to see the list of supported export formats.

The sample script export-pdf-to-jpeg.js converts a PDF file's pages to JPEG images. Note that the output is a zip archive containing the individual images.

node src/exportpdf/export-pdf-to-jpeg.js

Combine PDF Files
