Aspose.Words Cloud SDK for C++ wraps Aspose.Words REST API so you could seamlessly integrate Microsoft Word® document generation, manipulation, conversion & inspection features into your own C++ applications.

Word Document Processing in the Cloud

Aspose.Words Cloud SDK for C++ allows to work with document headers, footers, page numbering, tables, sections, document comments, drawing objects, FormFields, fonts, hyperlinks, ranges, paragraphs, math objects, watermarks, track changes and document protection. It also assists in appending documents, splitting documents as well as converting document to other supported file formats.

The complete source code is available at GitHub Repository.

Getting started with the SDK

Add "<SDK_ROOT>/include" directory to your project includes path. Link "<SDK_ROOT>/build/aspose_words_cloud_sdk/Release/aspose_words_cloud_sdk.lib" with your project. Link "<SDK_ROOT>/build/bin/Release/aspose_words_cloud_sdk.dll" for windows or "<SDK_ROOT>/build/bin/Release/" for linux with your project.

Typical usage of the SDK in code follows this template:

    // Start README example
    using namespace aspose::words::cloud;

    // Create client configuration
    auto config = std::make_shared<ApiConfiguration>(yourClientId, yourClientSecret, /*optional*/baseUrl);

    // Create API
    auto api = std::make_shared<api::WordsApi>(config);

    // Read file content
    auto stream = std::shared_ptr<std::istream>(new std::ifstream(std::filesystem::path(localPath), std::ifstream::binary));

    // upload file
    auto uploadRequest = std::shared_ptr<requests::UploadFileRequest>(
        new requests::UploadFileRequest(stream, remotePath)
    auto uploadResult = api->uploadFile(uploadRequest);

    // call one of API methods
    auto request = std::shared_ptr<requests::GetSectionsRequest>(
        new requests::GetSectionsRequest(remoteName, remoteDir)
    auto response = api->getSections(request);
    auto sections = response->getSections();

    // End README example
