How to Convert RTF to HTML in Node.JS

Converting RTF format into HTML can be a real chore, but it is certainly a useful feature if you can find a good way to implement it. That is the subject of today’s post: making that implementation as easy as possible. So forget all that coding you were preparing to do, as you won’t be needing it. All you will actually need is a Cloudmersive API.

Let’s install the client first:

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

Now call our function, as so:

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.convertDocumentRtfToHtml(inputFile, callback);

Done! The rest of this library covers a wealth of other document formats, allowing easy conversion like this, and also options for performing edits.

There’s an API for that. Cloudmersive is a leader in Highly Scalable Cloud APIs.
