Project description

This is a lightweight wrapper for the CloudConvert API.

Feel free to use, improve or modify this wrapper! If you have questions contact us or open an issue on GitHub.

PyPi Version Build Status


import cloudconvert

api = cloudconvert.Api('your_api_key')

process = api.convert({
    'inputformat': 'png',
    'outputformat': 'jpg',
    'input': 'upload',
    'file': open('tests/input.png', 'rb')
process.wait() # wait until conversion finished"tests/output.png") # download output file

You can use the CloudConvert API Console to generate ready-to-use python code snippets using this wrapper.


The easiest way to get the latest stable release is to grab it from pypi using pip.

pip install cloudconvert

Download of multiple output files

In some cases it might be possible that there are multiple output files (e.g. converting a multi-page PDF to JPG). You can download them all to one directory using the downloadAll() method.

import cloudconvert

api = cloudconvert.Api('your_api_key')

process = api.convert({
    'inputformat': 'pdf',
    'outputformat': 'jpg',
    'converteroptions': {
        'page_range': '1-3'
    'input': 'upload',
    'file': open('tests/input.pdf', 'rb')

Alternatively you can iterate over process['output']['files'] and download them seperately using, remotefile).

How to run tests?

pip install -r requirements-dev.txt
export API_KEY=your_api_key
