To get started get an Api-Key and Password by dropping us an email (email@example.com).
The Api-Key/Password is required to Authenticate with OAuth2. The Pdf4me Client Api provides you already with the necessary implementation. You need only to get an instance for the Pdf4meClient as shown in the sample below.
""" Either you store them in the config.properties file with keys client_id and secret Do not use any quotes: Correct: client_id=sample-not-working-key-aaaaaaa Incorrect: client_id="sample-not-working-key-aaaaaaa" In case the location of your config.properties differs from the default location ('../config.properties'), provide the optional argument path_to_config_file. """ pdf4me_client = Pdf4meClient(path_to_config_file='path_to_my_config.properties') """ or you pass them as arguments when constructing the Pdf4meClient object """ pdf4me_client = Pdf4meClient(client_id=client_id, secret=secret) # The pdf4meClient object delivers the necessary authentication when instantiating the different pdf4meClients such as for instance Merge merge_client = MergeClient(pdf4me_client) merged_pdf = merge_client.merge_2_pdfs( file1=FileReader().get_file_handler(path='my_first_pdf.pdf'), file2=FileReader().get_file_handler(path='my_second_pdf.pdf') )
It's recommended to create an instance of
Pdf4meClient per thread in a multithreaded environment to avoid any potential issues.
