How do I convert PDF or word documents into JSON format (using any language)?

JSON is a serialised data structure notation. Its format can be very abstract and made into whatever you want. So you could, at the very least, convert your word or pdf file to base64 and then wrap this json code around the base64 text. {'pdf_data'. 'JVBERi0xLjUNCiW1tbW1DQoxIDAgb2JqDQo8PC9UeXBlL0NhdGFsb2cvUGFnZXMgMiAwIFIvTGFu Zyhlbi1OWikgL091dGxpbmVzIDExMDYgMCBSPj4NCg=='} But I’m going to assume this is going to be quite useless to you. We’re going to need something more about the type of JSON format you want. Producing JSON is the easy part, many languagaes have object serialiser libraries and some languages support it natively (javascript, python) or have built-in converters (php) Reading PDF or word is probably a bit harder. You should be able to find a few libraries that can read PDF. As for Word, I was only able to find C# library for reading it. But depending on how you want your JSON there are probably too many possibilities to give examples on how to do it. Edit I’ve recently found an API / command line tools to convert PDF to JSON. A Content-Preserving PDF Transformation System However it basically captures the PDF structure in JSON format. PDFs use a Tree like structure, with data types such as Arrays, Dictionaries, strings and integers. And also a large stream format capable of holding binary data. So for the JSON to mean anything useful to you, you would need to read up on the PDF format.

Convert PDF: All You Need to Know

How do you want to transfer the data from one format to the other with an acceptable speed? What is the difference between XML and JSON? Why should you use one over the other? How do you store the data in a binary format when you want the ability to handle more data (e.g. large sets or text)? JSON has good scalability when it comes to the amount of data and the data structure (binary). Why should you use JSON over XML? The main difference between JSON and XML lies in the structure. JSON allows you to define a structure that is not necessarily unique. By defining a structure different from what was intended, JSON can represent this by having an additional key value pair with the name the same as the name of the structure. XML is more flexible in how it can be used when it's no way possible to.
