Saaspose APIs are REST based which allows developers to combine various features in your application to convert document, presentation, worksheets, pdf files, images and barcodes to other formats of their choice. Saaspose allows developers to combine features of different Saaspose APIs into their cloud API to make their application more productive and improve its performance.

Saaspose REST APIs now provides example in RUBY using which you can convert your document to any other formats. For example, if you want to convert a workbook to a PDF file, or you may choose to convert a PDF file to MS Word document, you can achieve all this and many more using Saaspose REST APIs some of which have been mentioned below.

• Saaspose.Slides allows you to convert PowerPoint documents i.e. presentations to other file formats in the cloud.

• You can also convert the workbook to desired file formats using Saaspose.Cells in your applications.

• Similarly, Saaspose.Words enables you to convert MS Word documents to different file formats. These conversions do not require you to upload the files on any storage and perform the conversion operation.

Saaspose allows you to convert your files which are stored on your local system to other formats using SDKs without saving the file to Saaspose storage. There are two methods to convert the file. First method is to use the file path to select the file which is stored on your system and second method is by using stream. In stream method the file is sent through the request stream to Saaspose servers, processed and the output is sent back as response stream. In this case, the file is not saved on Saaspose storage. It is a single call process that uses convert controller resource; it uploads the document to server as stream, converts the document to desired file format, sends the converted file back as response stream and deletes the source document from the server.
