To use this API, run the following command to install the SDK:

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

You may also add this snippet to your package.json:

"dependencies": {
"cloudmersive-convert-api-client": "^2.4.8"
}

Then, you can call the function:

var CloudmersiveConvertApiClient = require('cloudmersive-convert-api-client');
var defaultClient = CloudmersiveConvertApiClient.ApiClient.instance;
// Configure API key authorization: Apikey
var Apikey = defaultClient.authentications['Apikey'];
Apikey.apiKey = 'YOUR API KEY';
var apiInstance = new CloudmersiveConvertApiClient.ConvertDataApi();var inputFile = Buffer.from(fs.readFileSync("C:\\temp\\inputfile").buffer); // 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.convertDataXmlToJson(inputFile, callback);

With that, you can ensure your files are optimized for your next project.

You can retrieve the API Key from Cloudmersive at no cost and with no commitment. This will give you access to 800 monthly calls across our entire library of APIs.
