Can I read PDF or Word Docs with Node.js?


Question

I can't find any packages to do this. I know PHP has a ton of libraries for PDFs (like http://www.fpdf.org/) but anything for Node?

Accepted Answer

You can easily convert one into another, or use for example a .doc template to generate a .pdf file, but you will probably want to use an existing web service for this task.

This can be done using the services of Livedocx for example

To use this service from node, see node-livedocx (Disclaimer: I am the author of this node module)
