Without further ado, let’s get started! First, we need to install the package:

pip install cloudmersive-convert-api-client

Then, we are going to call the function with the following code:

from __future__ import print_function
import time
import cloudmersive_convert_api_client
from cloudmersive_convert_api_client.rest import ApiException
from pprint import pprint

All you have to do is insert your API key and the text string you want to search/replace, and your document will be modified according to your request! To retrieve your free API key, head to the Cloudmersive website to register for an account and gain access to 800 monthly calls across our many APIs.

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