ConvertPdfToTextFromUrl.js
      
// Please NOTE: In this sample we're assuming Cloud Api Server is hosted at "https://localhost". // If it's not then please replace this with with your hosting url. var https = require("https"); var path = require("path"); var fs = require("fs"); // Direct URL of source PDF file. const SourceFileUrl = "https://bytescout-com.s3.amazonaws.com/files/demo-files/cloud-api/pdf-to-text/sample.pdf"; // Comma-separated list of page indices (or ranges) to process. Leave empty for all pages. Example: '0,2-5,7-'. const Pages = ""; // PDF document password. Leave empty for unprotected documents. const Password = ""; // Destination TXT file name const DestinationFile = "./result.txt"; // Prepare request to `PDF To Text` API endpoint var queryPath = `/pdf/convert/to/text?name=${path.basename(DestinationFile)}&password=${Password}&pages=${Pages}&url=${SourceFileUrl}`; var reqOptions = { host: "localhost", path: encodeURI(queryPath) }; // Send request https.get(reqOptions, (response) => { response.on("data", (d) => { // Parse JSON response var data = JSON.parse(d); if (data.error == false) { // Download TXT file var file = fs.createWriteStream(DestinationFile); https.get(data.url, (response2) => { response2.pipe(file) .on("close", () => { console.log(`Generated TXT file saved as "${DestinationFile}" file.`); }); }); } else { // Service reported error console.log(data.message); } }); }).on("error", (e) => { // Request error console.log(e); });
