For those who are php developers, you might have a niche requirement to convert a PDF into HTML, or extract text content from a PDF for indexing purposes. Here at API2PDF, we have a PDF to HTML endpoint that does a best effort to extract the text from a PDF and output an HTML document.
Our API will take your .pdf file and convert it to html. Just make sure your PDF is saved as a .pdf file and accessible at a URL that our service can ingest. For example, see this: http://www.api2pdf.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/1a082b03-2bd6-4703-989d-0443a88e3b0f-4.pdf — Ideally a file storage provider like S3 or Azure Blob Storage. See the code sample below.
Step 1) Install the PHP client library from github: https://github.com/Api2Pdf/api2pdf.php
Step 2) Grab an API key from https://portal.api2pdf.com. Only takes 60 seconds.
Step 3) Use the sample code below and replace “YOUR-API-KEY” with the api key you acquired in step 2.
require_once 'your-own-directory/Api2Pdf.php'; $apiClient = new Api2Pdf('YOUR-API-KEY'); $result = $apiClient->libreOfficePdfToHtml('http://www.api2pdf.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/1a082b03-2bd6-4703-989d-0443a88e3b0f-4.pdf'); echo $result->getFile();
And that’s it! Modify the code as you see fit. Hopefully this saves you time and makes converting PDF to HTML files easy and painless for those writing php code.
We have a whole php based client library for our API that does a lot more than just this. Check out the full library capabilities here: https://github.com/Api2Pdf/api2pdf.phpTags: pdf to html api, php extract text from pdf, php pdf to html
