If you want to make a simple conversion without advanced parameters, a single CURL command should do it:
curl -F "File=@/path/to/my_file.docx" -F "StoreFile=true" https://v2.convertapi.com/convert/docx/to/html?Secret=your-api-secret
What makes our converter outstanding
DOCX files are based on Open XML format, storing your data in multiple files and folders inside a zip archive, which essentially means that the data is plain text and can be read and interpreted by machines and applications. Websites use HTML markup to present text and graphics, which can be generated from the DOCX file structure.
Many DOCX to HTML converters allow you to convert the Word document to a webpage while extracting the assets into a separate folder but using ConvertAPI, you can choose to embed all the necessary files into a single HTML file. Images inlined into the HTML file as base64 encoded strings make it simple for you to host a single file on a web server - you don't need to host those images separately and manage the external references. Setting the InlineImages property value to true produces a single HTML file that is easy to share, preview, and host on a server.
Alternatively, if you care about the produced HTML file size, you can still extract the assets by setting the InlineImages to false. The output HTML file will become much smaller in size, but it may lose some styling and formatting. If you choose to extract your assets from the HTML file, you will receive a ZIP archive containing all the necessary files for your webpage. If you want to keep the images visible in your HTML, you will need to host those images together with your HTML file.
