ExportForm

ExportForm[expr,"fmt"]

specifies that expr should be exported in the specified format in functions like CloudDeploy and in external results from APIFunction and FormFunction.

ExportForm[expr,{"fmt","type"}]

specifies that when expr is exported, it should be tagged as having the specified MIME type.

  • Common cases include:
  • "HTML"pure static HTML
