I was wondering if there was any API / SDK functionality to allow me to compare PDF files using adobe acrobat programatically. I see on the website below info on other features of adobe that can be performed programatically but not the compare functionality. Any information would be great.
Those APIs aren't actually part of Acrobat. They are a parallel product which does all the work on Adobe's servers, not using the Acrobat license you have. They don't provide an obvious link to the Acrobat SDK, which is here -- https://opensource.adobe.com/dc-acrobat-sdk-docs/acrobatsdk/
But comparing? Still no. The Acrobat API gives full low level access, but doesn't let you automate the tools in Acrobat.
That’s too bad, but I assumed as much. Do you know if there is ny way to embed Adobe Pro into a website? I know I can embed a PDF viewer into my website but it lacks the extended functionality that users will need like the compare tool.
The goal here is display information to users on this website and some of the info is in PDF form. Downloading the pdfs needed onto their machine and then running acrobat pro to compare them is tedious and my goal is to speed this process up by embedding this functionality into my page. Is something like this possible?
Ok, no, you cannot use Acrobat from a web site (not technically possible AND not licensed). You can only use SDKs made and licensed for web use.
