Fitting our needs with html conversion


#1

Howdy,
I’ve been trying to test several products including Aspose.powerpoint. All we really need is a java class which can read .ppt file, and return one html file per slide. It would be nice if it told us how many slide were in the file, but we could count them…

Boring details…

We wrote an application which generates HTML files (from our database) and sends users all HTML files. Users can click on main html file and view the presentation in the browser or click on ‘File->Edit presentation with MS power point’ to view presentation in power point.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office” /><o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>We need to modify this app to support our new requirement (see below) and that is why we are searching for tool which can help us.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>New requirement: Our user wants to merge their ppt file uploaded thru our application into our final presentation. We need some tool (should run on UNIX) which can read this ppt file and give us HTML files for each slide. We can then put these html files along with our pre generated html to generate the final presentation.
<o:p>
How can we do this with Aspose.powerpoint ?</o:p>

Hi,

You can read ppt, check how many slides it has, merge presentations and do many other things.
But you can’t convert ppt to html and vice versa.
We will implement converting to svg soon so it can be viewed in browsers like html.

Have you tried searching in Google for ppt2htm?

Usually conversion programs have names like that.


#4

ppt2html for Unix in Google? It’s a wasting of time.
It’s possible to find text extractors only (C++, Java and Perl) but no one program
can write formatted html yet which looks like real slide in browser.
