About

This API lets you submit and transform HTML content and files to PDF documents.
This API is ideal for developers and businesses as it can be used to streamline the creation of PDF documents from HTML. This makes it easier to distribute information to wider audiences, including those who may not have access to the original HTML content or the software used to create it. So, converting HTML to PDF through an API can ensure that information is shared in a consistent, secure, and easily accessible format while maintaining its visual integrity.

Authentication

All API requests to ApyHub services need to be authenticated. Currently we support tokens or basic authentication mechanisms. You can generate and view your existing credentials from your workspace settings (on the left side of the navbar) and go to “API Keys".
Points to note:
  • Credential secrets are generated on the fly and are not stored in plain text, so on generating a credential please save the secrets somewhere safe.
  • Use the apy-token as the header parameter to pass the token.
  • Use the Authorization header to send the basic authentication credentials.
