Billing enhancement: Auto refill packages

There is a great simplification for our long-term customers, especially our API users: By buying a prepaid package, you can now select the new "Auto Refill" option. This option makes sure the package is automatically refilled, if your quota of conversion minutes is used up to 95%.

If you have set up this once, you won't need to worry any more about your account is running out of quota and your API implementations might stop working.  We hope you like it!

CloudConvert on the command line

Wouldn't it be awesome if you could do

cloudconvert -f pdf *.docx

to convert all DOCX files in the current folder to PDF?

Now you can do so! We just released the official CloudConvert CLI. Checkout the full documentation for more examples and how to install it on your machine.

CloudConvert is out of Beta

We're often asked why CloudConvert stays in Beta for such a long time. CloudConvert is running now for more than one year stable and reliable and thus is not a "Beta" service in the traditional definition any more. Leaving Beta was an ongoing process for us and we are happy to announce that we are at the end of this process. We have Service Level Agreements and are offering prioritized support for our paying users.

Besides of the thousands of users which relay on CloudConvert every day there are a lot of services out there which use our API in production already today. As we are officially out of Beta now there is really no barrier for enterprise usage now. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us!

Box integration

With Box.com we just integrated the fourth storage provider for CloudConvert. You can now use Box both as input and output storage for conversions. Plus, if you have connected your Box account with your CloudConvert account, you will find a new button "Convert this file with CloudConvert" directly in the Box App UI!

Swift Framework for iOS and OS X

Today we are releasing the initial version of our API Wrapper for Swift. As we are using it in our iOS App for CloudConvert we thought it makes sense to publish it.

The following code snippet shows how easily it can be used. Also, we published a complete XCode Example project in the repository.

import CloudConvert
 
CloudConvert.apiKey = "your_api_key"
 
let inputURL = NSBundle.mainBundle().URLForResource("file",withExtension: "png")!
let outputURL = NSFileManager.defaultManager().URLsForDirectory(.DocumentDirectory, inDomains: .UserDomainMask)[0] as? NSURL
 
CloudConvert.convert([
                    "inputformat": "png",
                    "outputformat" : "pdf",
                    "input" : "upload",
                    "file": inputURL,
                    "download": outputURL
                ],
                progressHandler: { (step, percent, message) -> Void in
                    println(step! + " " + percent!.description + "%: " + message!)
                },
                completionHandler: { (path, error) -> Void in
                    if(error != nil) {
                        println("failed: " + error!.description)
                    } else {
                        println("done! output file saved to: " + path!.description)
                    }   
            })

We are looking forward to see the awesome apps you create using it!
