How to convert PDF to Word DOCX format in Node.JS

PDFs are great, but they certainly have their limitations and inconveniences. If you are looking for a quick method to swap your PDFs into DOCX format, you’ve come to just the place. Our API will have you on the right track in moments!

Add this reference into your package.JSON file, which will install our API client so we can continue with the process.

"dependencies": {
"cloudmersive-convert-api-client": "^2.1.6"
}

Proceed with our function call:

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.convertDocumentPdfToDocx(inputFile, callback);

Drop in your PDF, and boom! You’re done! Aren’t APIs great?
