  1. Create an instance of Configuration class where we pass client credentials as arguments.
var configurations = new Configuration(clientId, clientSecret1);
  1. Initialize the ConvertApi where we pass Configuration object as an input argument.
var apiInstance = new ConvertApi(configurations);
  1. Upload the input CSV file to the cloud storage.
fileUpload.UploadFile(new UploadFileRequest("input.csv", stream));
  1. Create an instance ConvertSettings where we specify the name for input CSV, resultant format as html and the name for output HTML as arguments.
var settings = new ConvertSettings{...}
  1. Call the ConvertDocumentRequest API to convert CSV to HTML and save the resultant HTML to the cloud storage.
var response = apiInstance.ConvertDocument(new ConvertDocumentRequest(settings));

CSV to HTML Conversion using cURL Commands

You may also leverage the power and flexibility of using GroupDocs.Conversion Cloud and cURL commands for CSV files to HTML conversion. This approach offers a convenient and efficient way to transform CSV data into HTML documents, catering to various use cases such as data presentation, web publishing, and more. So, let’s explore the details on how we can initiate and control the conversion process seamlessly either through command-line interface or within the scripts.

The first step is to generate a JWT access token based on client credentials and once we have generated the JWT token, please execute the following cURL command to convert CSV to HTML table and save the resultant HTML in cloud storage.

curl -v "https://api.groupdocs.cloud/v2.0/conversion" \
-H "accept: application/json" \
-H "authorization: Bearer {accessToken}" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d "{  \"StorageName\": \"internal\",  \"FilePath\": \"{sourceFile}\",  \"Format\": \"html\",  \"LoadOptions\": {    \"Format\": \"csv\"  },  \"OutputPath\": \"{resultantFile}\"}" -v

Please replace sourceFile with the name of input CSV file, resultantFile with the name of resultant HTML and accessToken with personalized JWT access token.

  • Now, instead of saving the resultant HTML to Cloud storage, you may also save it to the local drive. Please try using following cURL command:
curl -v "https://api.groupdocs.cloud/v2.0/conversion" \
-H "accept: application/json" \
-H "authorization: Bearer {accessToken}" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d "{  \"StorageName\": \"internal\",  \"FilePath\": \"{sourceFile}\",  \"Format\": \"html\",  \"LoadOptions\": {    \"Format\": \"csv\"  }}" \
-o "ConvertedFile.html"
