@pdftron/pdfnet-node

This package leverages the full power of PDFTron's native SDK for maximal performance and accuracy. In order to maintain consistency across platforms the Javascript API is used in the same manner as the PDFNet API available in PDFTron's Web platform. Since access to the filesystem is included in Node.js some additional APIs requiring filesystem access have also been included.

Supported platform and node versions

This package depends on unmanaged add-on binaries, and the add-on binaries are not cross-platform. At the moment we have support for

  • OS: Linux(x64), Windows(x64), Mac
  • Node.js version: 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13

Installation will fail if your OS or node version is not supported.

Usage

Here is a code snippet to demonstrate how to use this package.

const { PDFNet } = require('@pdftron/pdfnet-node');  // you may need to set up NODE_PATH environment variable to make this work.
 
const main = async() => {
  try {
    const doc = await PDFNet.PDFDoc.create();
    const page = await doc.pageCreate();
    doc.pagePushBack(page);
    doc.save('blank.pdf', PDFNet.SDFDoc.SaveOptions.e_linearized);
  } catch (err) {
    console.log(err);
  }
};
 
PDFNet.runWithCleanup(main, 0).then(function(){ PDFNet.shutdown(); });

There are some code samples in the @pdftron/pdfnet-node/samples directory.

The add-on requires a dynamic library in the lib directory of the package. You need set up LD_LIBRARY_PATH for Linux, or DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH for Mac, to contain @pdftron/pdfnet-node/lib in your node_modules directory

To get started please see the documentation at https://www.pdftron.com/documentation/nodejs/get-started/integration.
