PDF.co PDF to HTML API Benefits
Support for Multiple Languages
If you don’t have your API key yet, you can get it here. You can also get updated code samples that you can copy and use from Github, if you prefer testing the API in different languages first.
Our PDF to HTML API is Secure
Data security is an important consideration when handling client information. We use SSL to secure our API connection, and host the servers on Amazon’s AWS infrastructure, making ours the best PDF to HTML converter. It guarantees you maximum data protection, making your business compliant with ePHI requirements.
In that regard, you can use our API for PDF to HTML5 conversion, or use the PDF to HTML source code. Furthermore, our API auto deletes any data you upload to its temporary storage, after 1 hour. And you have an option to use the “Delete” parameter to auto-delete the data instantly.
How to Upload Files for PDF to HTML Conversion
The PDF to HTML API allows you to upload files of up to 2GB to its temporary storage. The files are auto-deleted after 1 hour, but you have an option to delete them promptly, using “delete” param.
Step 1. Get API Upload Link
To get the upload link “presignedUrl”, use the “/file/upload/get-presigned-url” call method. That will also output the uploaded file’s access “URL” link.
Step 2. Upload PDF to API Link
Upload the file to “presignedUrl” using the “PUT” method. However, you must initiate the upload, within 30 minutes of getting the “presignedUrl”. Otherwise, you must request another upload link.
Step 3 Convert PDF to HTML using API
You can now use the “URL” link from step 1, along with your APK key, to complete the PDF conversion.
How to Execute PDF to HTML API Converter Asynchronously
Large files will time out when converting them from PDF to HTML if the execution is not asynchronous. To execute the API asynchronously and in the background, call the API method with “URL” param as the input, and set “async” param to “true”.
The API will return an output “URL” along with the task’s “jobId”. You can use the “jobId” to check its execution status using the /job/check API method, and the “URL” to access the converted HTML file.
