How to Convert ODT to JPG in Node.JS

Today we are going to take a very dull and tedious task (file conversion) and make it the simplest thing ever! Instead of wasting your afternoon, you can sit back and relax after just a couple minutes of setup. How can it be so easy? Well, everything becomes easy when you have an API that will do all the hard work for you. Let’s begin.

First, our installation, using this command:

npm install cloudmersive-convert-api-client --save

And now our function call, which you is laid out in this example, and easily adaptable to your project needs.

var CloudmersiveConvertApiClient = require('cloudmersive-convert-api-client');var defaultClient = CloudmersiveConvertApiClient.ApiClient.instance;// Configure API key authorization: Apikeyvar Apikey = defaultClient.authentications['Apikey'];Apikey.apiKey = 'YOUR API KEY';// Uncomment the following line to set a prefix for the API key, e.g. "Token" (defaults to null)//Apikey.apiKeyPrefix = 'Token';var apiInstance = new CloudmersiveConvertApiClient.ConvertDocumentApi();var inputFile = "/path/to/file"; // File | Input file to perform the operation on.var opts = {'quality': 56 // Number | Optional; Set the JPEG quality level; lowest quality is 1 (highest compression), highest quality (lowest compression) is 100; recommended value is 75. Default value is 75.};var callback = function(error, data, response) {if (error) {console.error(error);} else {console.log('API called successfully. Returned data: ' + data);}};apiInstance.convertDocumentOdtToJpg(inputFile, opts, callback);

And there you have it, ladies and gentlemen. Simple.
