New box view API - PDF conversion and Crocodoc replacement

Hi.  I have an app that currently uses the old Box API to convert PDF documents, and it uses the Crocodoc viewer to view the resulting resources in the browser.  Couple questions:

 

1. Does the new API convert PDF files in the same way? i.e. the resulting files are the same (my guess is no since I've found migration guides in this forum)

2. Is there any replacement for the Crocodoc viewer that will work with the new converted resources?

3. I haven't been able to find any npm package that wraps the new API.  Am I just missing it?

 

Thanks.

@Pacodekumite thanks for reaching out. Please check out our Content Preview UI Element, which replaces the Crocodoc Viewer. Basically, it works the same way as Crocodoc did but supports additional file types and improving rendering quality and performance. https://github.com/box/box-content-preview

 

It is also hosted on NPM here: https://www.npmjs.com/package/box-ui-elements

 

Please let us know if you have any questions.
