Thats it! We are all set to start writing code snippet to convert ZIP to HTML in Node.js.
Convert ZIP to HTML in Node.js Programmatically
We have uploaded a source ZIP file to our API Cloud Dashboard. In fact, you can upload manually or programmatically by calling this UploadFile method.
Please follow the following steps to build a ZIP to HTML converter in Node.js:
- Include the groupdocs-conversion-cloud module in your Node.js project.
- Initialize the Configuration object using your Client ID and Client Secret.
- Set the base API URL.
- Invoke the fromKeys method of the ConvertApi class and pass the API credentials.
- Create an object of the ConvertSettings class and assign values to the filepath, format, and outputPath properties.
- Create a convert document request by instantiating an object of the ConvertDocumentRequest class.
- Call the convertDocument method to convert ZIP to HTML.
The following code sample demonstrates the ZIP to HTML conversion:
Once you run the server file, you will see the output file generated in the “output” folder in the API Cloud Dashboard. Again, you can download the files generated or programmatically by calling the DownloadFile method.
