    A command line tool to convert Microsoft Office documents to PDFs

    My best idea right now is to use OfficeToPDF and then develop my own API endpoint with an IIS setup (which I've never used before, so this will be a mess at the beginning).

    Gotenberg does this. (It's recommended for this purpose for use with paperless-ng)

  • Mergify
