.NET API for JSON and XML Conversion

GroupDocs.Conversion provides a .NET API that allows automating the conversion of different documents, images, and other file formats into one another. I am using the same API here to convert JSON files into XML format using C#. Along with the JSON and XML conversion, the API supports many other back and forth conversions like word-processing documents, presentations, eBooks, JPG, PNG, WebP, and many more. You can see the details on the documentation.

You can download the DLLs or MSI installer from the downloads section or install the API in your .NET application via NuGet.

PM> Install-Package GroupDocs.Conversion
