Integrating GroupDocs.Annotation Cloud SDK into your Python applications is very easy. No installation is required on the server or client side. Just create an account at GroupDocs.Cloud to get App SID & key. Following example shows how easy it is to import annotation information using Python:
# Get your App SID and App Key at https://dashboard.groupdocs.cloud (free registration is required). # For complete examples and data files, please go to https://github.com/groupdocs-annotation-cloud/groupdocs-annotation-cloud-python app_sid = "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX" app_key = "XXXXXXXXXXXX" # Create instance of the API. api = groupdocs_annotation_cloud.AnnotationApi.from_keys(app_sid, app_key) path = "FolderName" + "MyDocument.pdf" a = AnnotationInfo() a.annotation_position = Point() a.annotation_position.x = 852 a.annotation_position.y = 59 a.box = Rectangle() a.box.x = 375 a.box.y = 59 a.box.width = 88 a.box.height = 37 a.type = "Area" a.creator_name = "Anonym A." request = groupdocs_annotation_cloud.PostAnnotationsRequest(path, a) response = api.post_annotations(request) print(response)
Using GroupDocs.Annotation Cloud SDK for Python, you can work with diverse types of annotations. The two basic types are; Text Annotations and Figure Annotations. While using text-based annotation, you can add text comments to selected text; highlight which text should be replaced with what, hide confidential text using text redaction, highlight text with strikethroughs/underlines, and add sticky notes with rich text. While working with figure annotations, you can add notes to an area highlighted with a rectangle (Area Annotation), add notes to any point in the document (Point Annotation), hide confidential parts of an image or text (Area Redaction), draw freehand lines and shapes (Polyline), arrows pointing to an object (Pointer/Arrow), create text-based watermark overlays (Watermark), and measure the distance between any objects in a document (Distance Annotation).
GroupDocs.Annotation Cloud SDK for Python is 100% tested and out of the box running. The SDK is open source and has an MIT license. You can use it, and even customize it for absolutely free of charge.
