The CloudConvert website / HTML to PDF, JPG and PNG converter is often used to generate PDF files or thumbnails. Currently, we are using a proven, WebKit-based engine. However, there are use cases that require an even more modern rendering. We are currently experimenting with automating the Chrome browser for this matter.
There is a new option available to enable Chrome for converting HTML files or websites. This option is named "use_chrome" when using our API.
Please note that currently not all of the pre-existing options are available when using Chrome instead of the current engine. The possible options are:
When converting to PDF:
When converting to JPG/PNG:
We are looking forward to get your feedback about this new feature. In particular we are interested if there are any formatting issues or if there are required options missing.
