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

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

You can 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;

This will return a downloadable file for your use. 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 library of APIs.
