As a RESTful API, Cloud API provides developers of any skill level the flexibility and ease in coding in cURL to perform complex tasks such as converting PDFs to JSON from URL.
Cloud API can also help facilitate PDF merging and splitting, document editing and reformatting, and barcode reading from PDFs, images, and scanned documents. This API is also equipped with image recognition technology and has a built-in OCR.
To give you a better grasp of what Cloud API can do, we prepared a sample code that you can utilize in converting PDFs to JSON API in your cURL project. All you have to do is copy and paste the code into your code editor and run it. You’ll be amazed how much time and effort you’ll save from writing and testing codes. You may also opt to check out our GitHub repository to get this cURL code snippet.
