How to install Aspose.Cloud SDKs

Cloud APIs logo

Aspose.Cloud provides a huge set of Cloud-based REST APIs offering the capabilities to create, manipulate as well as transform input files to other supported output formats. You can directly access the APIs using cURL commands via command prompt. Similarly, you can use individually created programming SDKs to fulfill your requirements. Therefore, if you need to manipulate MS Word files using C# .NET, you need to try using Aspose.Words Cloud SDK for .NET.

Furthermore, if you need to manipulate PowerPoint presentations using PHP language, you need to try using Aspose.Slides Cloud SDK for PHP. In this article, we are defining the steps to install Cloud SDKs.

Account creation on Aspose dashboard

  • Please visit Aspose.Cloud dashboard website. You will be redirected to the Aspose Single-Sign-On authentication service.
  • If you have GitHub or Google account, simply Sign Up. Otherwise, click on the Create a new Account button and provide the required information. Once your account has been successfully created and you can access Aspose Cloud Dashboard.
  • Expand the Applications section and click Create New Application button
  • Provide a name for your Application and specify default storage for the Application using the plus (+) button
  • Specify the name for Storage and storage mode value (Retain files for 24 hours, Retain files for one week or Retain files for one month)
  • Again click the Applications menu from the left menu and select the Application created in the last step.
  • Scroll down towards the Client Credentials section to see Client ID and Client Secret details.

The same Client ID and Client Secret details are used for initializing and authenticating the Cloud SDK object. In the following code snippet, we are going to initialize an object of Aspose.Words Cloud SDK for .NET.

String MyClientID = "c235e685-1aab-4cda-a95b-54afd63eb87f";
String MyClientSecret = "c235e685-1aab-4cda-a95b-54afd63eb87f";
// Initialize a new object of Words Api by providing Client ID and Client Secret
WordsApi wordsApi = new WordsApi(MyClientID, MyClientSecret);

Cloud SDKs features

The beauty of REST-based Cloud APIs is that you can accomplish complex operations such as MS Word file conversion to PDF, PDF to Image conversion, Convert Excel File to HTML in Cloud, Merge Excel Workbooks, Convert PowerPoint Documents to other File Formats and much more with just few code lines. The given below code snippet shows the steps to load MS Word file and render the output in PDF format using Aspose.Words Cloud SDK for .NET.
