How to validate a Word DOCX Document in Python

While DOCX validation might be very important, it sure is boring to write in Python. And that is why I am here today: to rescue from your tedious fate! My rescue comes in the form of sharing an API that can handle all your validation needs for document files. Let’s begin.

First step: pip install the client.

ip install cloudmersive-convert-api-client

Time for calling the validate_document_docx_validation function.

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.ValidateDocumentApi(cloudmersive_convert_api_client.ApiClient(configuration))input_file = '/path/to/file' # file | Input file to perform the operation on.try:# Validate a Word document (DOCX)api_response = api_instance.validate_document_docx_validation(input_file)pprint(api_response)except ApiException as e:print("Exception when calling ValidateDocumentApi->validate_document_docx_validation: %s\n" % e)

Wow, that sure was easy. Aren’t you glad you didn’t waste your time trying to set that up manually?
