What's DocLift?

DocLift is an API that allows your web or mobile application to outsource document generation. In any application that generates documents, you might encounter the following setbacks:

  1. Document generation is a very heavy process for your server, often the heaviest in the entire app.

  2. Designing the document involves front-end and back-end developers.

  3. Modifying the document layout takes times and required going through the whole CI process.

With this context, DocLift brings a simple solution: outsource it!

With DocLift, when you need to implement a new document, your just need to think about 2 simple things:

  1. When do I need it?

  2. What dynamic data do I need in it?

Then with a simple API call through our RESTful API, you'll be able to specify which document you need to create and define its dynamic data. That's all for the technical part! Then the business team will be able to customize the final appearance of the document by editing its layout on an online editor. They'll be able to add dynamic data to it, such as variables and checkboxes. The modifications will be instantly live for your end users.

Creating your account

To use DocLift, you'll first need to create an account (no payment or credit card required). You can do so by following this link.

Getting your credentials

Once you have created your account, you'll be able to create your first credentials. For this, simply navigate to "Nouvelle clé API" or follow this link. Then name your API key and store the generated API key in a safe place; you will need it to authorize every request. If you lose it, you'll be able to create a new API key.
