Getting Started

Using public URLs

import ILovePDFApi from '@ilovepdf/ilovepdf-nodejs';

const instance = new ILovePDFApi('<PUBLIC_KEY>', '<SECRET_KEY>');

// Public and secret key can be found in your developer panel
// at https://developer.ilovepdf.com/user/projects .
const task = instance.newTask('merge');

// Promise-based way to use ILovePDFApi.
task.start()
.then(() => {
    return task.upload('<FILE_URL>');
})
.then(() => {
    return task.upload('<FILE_URL>');
})
.then(() => {
    return task.process();
})
.then(() => {
    return task.download();
})
.then((data) => {
    console.log('DONE');
});

Using ILovePDFFile class

import ILovePDFApi from '@ilovepdf/ilovepdf-nodejs';
import ILovePDFFile from '@ilovepdf/ilovepdf-nodejs/ILovePDFFile';

const instance = new ILovePDFApi('<PUBLIC_KEY>', '<SECRET_KEY>');

const task = instance.newTask('merge');

task.start()
.then(() => {
    const file = new ILovePDFFile('<FILE_PATH>');

    return task.upload(file);
})
.then(() => {
    return task.upload('<FILE_URL>');
})
.then(() => {
    return task.process();
})
.then(() => {
    return task.download();
})
.then((data) => {
    console.log('DONE');
});

Use sync calls

Thanks to be a promise-based API it is possible use the await JavaScript operator in order to call Task methods. Here you have an example:

    let task = instance.newTask('merge');
    task = await task.start();
    task = await task.upload('<FILE_URL>');
    task = await task.upload('<FILE_URL>');
    task = await task.process();

    const data = await task.download();
