How to Convert ODP to PNG in Node.JS

It’s a pretty safe assumption that your ideal afternoon would not be spent trying to write code for format conversion in Node.JS. That is quite understandable, as I can personally attest to its level of tedium. I can also provide you with a way to avoid such tedium, however, allowing you to get this feature into your project faster than you can finish your coffee.

We will harness a Cloudmersive API’s power to get us the speed that we need, so install its client first.

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

Now our function call will look like this:

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 callback = function(error, data, response) {if (error) {console.error(error);} else {console.log('API called successfully. Returned data: ' + data);}};apiInstance.convertDocumentOdpToPng(inputFile, callback);

And it’s really just that easy. That’s right, you’re done.
