Convert Markdown to PDF – Cloud SDKs and REST API

Markdown to PDF

PDF is a static document format that supports text, images, form fields, media, digital signatures, hyperlinks, etc. Converting Markdown to PDF preserves document formatting and ensures consistent display across different devices and platforms. PDF is widely supported and provides a reliable format for sharing and archiving documents while retaining the original layout and styling of the Markdown content. PDFs’ extensive interoperability and security features enhance document sharing and protection of sensitive information.

Aspose.HTML Cloud v4.0 provides the simplest API to convert MD documents to PDF format with high quality, easy and fast.

The article details a series of code examples demonstrating the conversion of a Markdown document to PDF using Aspose.HTML Cloud client SDKs and REST API. SDKs are available in PHP, C++, Python, C#, Ruby, Java, Android, Swift, and Node.js. Various conversion scenarios are covered:

  1. Converting a local Markdown file to PDF and saving the result in the local file system. This includes exploring conversions with both default and explicitly specified parameters.
  2. Converting Markdown to PDF directly in cloud storage using default conversion parameters.

Examples of Markdown to PDF Conversion

A common use case for Aspose.HTML Cloud SDK functions is file processing and conversion. The Cloud SDK enables you to retrieve an Markdown document from storage by its name or from a local file on your drive, convert it to a specified format, and save it back to storage or your local drive. The following code examples demonstrate how to convert Markdown to PDF using various SDKs and cURL for different scenarios.

Example 1. Convert Markdown to PDF with default save options

Let’s look at an example of converting a local Markdown file to PDF and saving the result to a local file system. The conversion occurs with default conversion options.

Markdown to PDF conversion occurs with the default conversion options: the resulting PDF document’s width and height correspond to A4, and all margins have zero value.

Example 2. Convert Markdown to PDF with explicitly specified options

The example below demonstrates how to convert an Markdown file from a local file system to PDF with explicitly specified options and save the result back to the local file system.

More details about available conversion parameters for Markdown files are in the SDK Conversion Options section.

Example 3. Convert Markdown to PDF inside cloud storage

Aspose.HTML Cloud allows you to get an Markdown file from your cloud storage and save conversion result back to cloud storage. The conversion occurs with default conversion options.
