Extract PDF from HTML to save important information from websites, and then share it with business associates or clients. PDFs offer an excellent way to store digital information, because they retain the format used, unlike text and word processors.
With our PDF from HTML API, you can securely make PDF from HTML automatically, and do it on a large scale.
Why Use Our API to Generate PDF from HTML Page
Our API tool resides and runs from the secure Amazon AWS infrastructure. Furthermore, all data transfers from your devices to our servers are secure by SSL/TLS. The end-to-end encryption ensures that you comply with privacy laws, and your business secrets remain safe.
Our API tool integrates easily with other automation tools such as the Zapier plugin, and it includes an inbuilt Image Recognition and OCR. In case you do not want to use the tool with offline SDKs or want an on-premise API server, the option is also available.
ADD Large Files – Asynchronous Mode
When generating a large PDF from a large HTML document, then you need to do it in the “async” mode. Otherwise, the process will time out and return an error. To activate the “async” mode, you have to set the “async” input param to “true”.
That will trigger the API method to create a background process, and output a unique ID “jobId” identifying that job, along with a “URL”. You must use the “URL” to access the job once it is ready. To get a “success” status once the job is ready, you need to use the code “/job/check”.
