How to validate a PowerPoint PPTX Presentation in Javascript

Proper file validation can save you a ton of headache down the road. Let’s skip past the normally time-consuming method of implementation in favor of a quick solution via an API.

Importing our API client requires this script tag in your HTML file.

<script src="https://cdn.cloudmersive.com/jsclient/cloudmersive-document-convert-client.js"></script>

Now call this function here:

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.ValidateDocumentApi();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.validateDocumentPptxValidation(inputFile, callback);

Well, that was easy. If this solution felt pretty good, you should look at our other API options. They can do all kinds of stuff, including converting document formats and virus scanning.
