Install: npm install pdf_page_count
This project uses ghostscript, but there's no need to install it (if you use windows). If you want the module to use a local installation of ghostscript, set the option useLocalGhostscript true.
Tested on Windows/Tested on AZURE
Not tested on linux! If you want to use it with linux, you may replace the ghostscript-executable with something that works with linux. Or you install ghostscript for linux. http://www.ghostscript.com/
here are some examples how to use it:
// test with pdf with one pagepdfPageCount;// ..you can also give the function raw datavar file = fs;pdfPageCount;// ..or you give a web url, also possible (should be a http, not a https)pdfPageCount;
If an error like this appears: Something went wrong: Error converting pdf to png: Error: Command failed: 'gs' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
Maybe you have the node file you execute in a subfolder and Pdf2Png doesn't set the path to ghostscript correctly anymore. You can rewrite the path to the executable by setting "pdf2png.ghostscriptPath". Look at the following example of a script, being in the subfolder /lib. It first detects the project-root folder and then builds the absolute path to the ghostscript folder.
var projectPath = __dirname;projectPath;projectPath = projectPath;var gsPath = projectPath + "\\executables\\ghostScript";// Rewrite the ghostscript pathpdf2pngghostscriptPath = gsPath;
