Get a list of supported file formats - Android


  public class ApiExample {
  public static void getSupportedFormats() {

  //TODO: Get your AppSID and AppKey at (free registration is required).

  Configuration configuration = new Configuration(appSid, appKey);

  InfoApi infoApi = new InfoApi(configuration);

  try {
      FormatsResult response = infoApi.getSupportedFileFormats();
      for (Format format : response.getFormats()) {
      } catch (ApiException e) {
          System.err.println("Failed to get supported file formats");


Efficiently Minify Output Content

One of the most exciting features of our Cloud-based viewer API is its ability to minify the output content. Minification removes comments, extra white-spaces, and other unneeded characters without breaking the content structure. As a result, the page becomes smaller in size and loads faster.
