How to virus scan an HTML file in Node.JS

Since you’re here, I’m guessing you need a quick virus scan solution for Node.JS. I’ve got just the thing, and it’s only going to take a couple minutes.

We start off by installing our Node API client — simply add this reference to your package.json.

"dependencies": {
"cloudmersive-virus-api-client": "^1.1.3"

Now just activate scanFile on your HTML file, like so:

var CloudmersiveVirusApiClient = require('cloudmersive-virus-api-client');var defaultClient = CloudmersiveVirusApiClient.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 CloudmersiveVirusApiClient.ScanApi();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.scanFile(inputFile, callback);

And that about wraps things up. The API will return the scan results, including information about any potential threats.

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