Compress DOCX in Python

Using our powerful Python API, developers can compress DOCX to optimize content and output file size. Reducing file size occurs by cleaning up unused data and resources. You can also compress images to make the output file size even smaller.

The result of content optimization and compression can be saved in the original DOCX or any available save format – DOCX, DOC, RTF, PDF, HTML and many others.

Reduce DOCX file size in Python

As mentioned, our Python SDK allows you to programmatically reduce the size of DOCX. And now you can try our powerful functionality and evaluate how to compress DOCX in Python with the following example:

Upload a file you want to optimize/compress
Run code
Select the target format from the list
import asposewordscloud

words_api = WordsApi(client_id = '####-####-####-####-####', client_secret = '##################')

request_document = open('Input.docx', 'rb')
request_compress_options = asposewordscloud.CompressOptions(
   images_quality=75, images_reduce_size_factor=1)
compress_document_request = asposewordscloud.models.requests.CompressDocumentOnlineRequest(
   document=request_document, compress_options=request_compress_options)
compress_document = words_api.compress_document_online(compress_document_request)

convert_document = asposewordscloud.models.requests.ConvertDocumentRequest(
   document=list(insert_paragraph.document.values())[0], format='docx')
Run code
Copy Python code to the clipboard

How to compress DOCX Python REST API

  1. Install Aspose.Words Cloud for Python
  2. Add a library reference (import the library) to your Python project
  3. Configure API using your app keys
  4. Load the source DOCX to compress
  5. Compress DOCX, clean unused information
  6. Select the output file format
  7. Get the result of DOCX compression as a separate file

Python library to use DOCX compression

Install Aspose.Words Cloud SDK for Python using PyPi repository. Run pip install aspose-words-cloud to install the SDK, then import the package via import asposewordscloud. As an alternative, you can manually clone Aspose.Words Cloud SDK for Python source code from GitHub and use it in your project. Please follow these Instructions to quickly get the necessary security credentials and access our REST API.
