Split Word using REST API in Ruby

This Ruby library provides Ruby developers with the ability to work with a Word split function using REST API. It allows you to split one Word document into several smaller files online in Ruby. For example, you may need to email a few pages from your Word document, or you may want to show a customer only a part of your Word file. All this can be done through the Word splitting functionality in Ruby code.

Various methods can be used for splitting a Word file: 'by page', 'by page ranges', 'by headings', 'by section break'. Just load the original Word document and choose the method you need. Make sure your Word document uses the required heading styles or contains section breaks if you want to split your Word file according to these criteria using Ruby code. After splitting a Word document you can export the result as separate document pages or smaller files.
