Specify the path to an output directory that will contain the generated JSON manifest and related files. If there is no output directory specified, the default directory will have the same name as the input file's base name and be located at the same place of the input file. For example, if the input XML file is C:\xmlManifests\myAddin.xml, the default output directory will be C:\xmlManifests\myAddin.
Specify that the conversion should download the images into the output directory.
Specify that extra log messages should be written to console.

This package provides an API called
convert. The API takes two required parameters and two optional ones:
convert(inputXmlManifestFile: string, outputJsonManifestFolder: string, imageDownload: boolean = false, verbose: boolean = false);
inputXmlManifestFile: path of the input XML manifest file.
outputJsonManifestFolder: path of the output folder that will contain all generated files, including one JSON manifest file and a few icon files.
imageDownload: whether the conversion should download the images into the output directory.
verbose: whether extra log messages should be written to console.
The following example converts an XML manifest file, C:\xmlManifests\myAddin.xml, to json manifest and puts the converted files into C:\jsonManifests\myAddin folder.
var converter = require("office-addin-manifest-converter"); converter.convert("C:/xmlManifests/myAddin.xml", "C:/jsonManifests/myAddin", true, false);
