You might need to convert a URL to an image, URL to PNG, or automatically take a screenshot of a website for various reasons. Maybe you are crawling websites and would like an image preview of all of them for a database. In either case, if you’re python and you have been doing research, you probably came across Headless Chrome or wkhtmltoimage. Working with either is a headache. Much easier to write just a few lines of code and call it a day. You can easily take a screenshot of a URL with python within minutes using our REST API.
Step 1) Open up your package manager and run the command
pip install api2pdf
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.
from api2pdf import Api2Pdf a2p_client = Api2Pdf('YOUR-API-KEY') api_response = a2p_client.Chrome.url_to_image('https://www.api2pdf.com') print(api_response.result)
And that’s it! Modify the code as you see fit. Hopefully this saves you time and makes converting converting URLs to images easy and painless for those writing python code.
We have a whole python based client library for our API that does a lot more than just this.
