Today’s solution makes use of an API, so let’s install its client now:
pip install cloudmersive-convert-api-client
Our function call for merge_document_pptx will need to include an API instantiation using a key. This is shown in the following example:
from __future__ import print_functionimport timeimport cloudmersive_convert_api_clientfrom cloudmersive_convert_api_client.rest import ApiExceptionfrom pprint import pprint# Configure API key authorization: Apikeyconfiguration = cloudmersive_convert_api_client.Configuration()configuration.api_key['Apikey'] = 'YOUR_API_KEY'# Uncomment below to setup prefix (e.g. Bearer) for API key, if needed# configuration.api_key_prefix['Apikey'] = 'Bearer'# create an instance of the API classapi_instance = cloudmersive_convert_api_client.MergeDocumentApi(cloudmersive_convert_api_client.ApiClient(configuration))input_file1 = '/path/to/file' # file | First input file to perform the operation on.input_file2 = '/path/to/file' # file | Second input file to perform the operation on (more than 2 can be supplied).try:# Merge Two PowerPoint PPTX Togetherapi_response = api_instance.merge_document_pptx(input_file1, input_file2)pprint(api_response)except ApiException as e:print("Exception when calling MergeDocumentApi->merge_document_pptx: %s\n" % e)
Notice that you may use two or more PPTX files, which will be placed in order in the merged file. This allows you to repeatedly call merge_document_pptx using the previous call’s output, thus accommodating as many files as desired. Within this library, there exists a wide variety of other functions, allowing merging of other file formats, but also format conversion, document editing, and much more.
