API Version 5
We have released a major new release on the rendering engine for HTML to PDF API and Screenshot API. It is mostly backwards compatible.
privacy** parameter**: If you set
privacy=trueon your calls. This ensured that we will not store the resulting document or any immediate render for caching or future use. The captured document will be streamed directly to you and will be discarded. Note that this parameter is not compatible with as that requires us to save and host the resulting document.
cache_ttl** parameter**: The new API has caching disabled by default. We have removed the
freshparameter from the earlier versions. Not every call returns a fresh capture. If you wish to cache documents for repeated calls, please set
cache_ttlto maximum number of seconds you wish to cache your resulting documents.
The new API is faster and more reliable due to architectural changes. In order to minimize the call latency, we made several changes to our pipeline and you should see the results on your API calls.
In order to switch to the new version, you can simply change your API call url to
https://restpack.io/api/html2pdf/v5/convert. If you do not need caching, there would be no more changes required.
