docxtemplater is a library to generate docx/pptx documents from a docx/pptx template. It can replace {placeholders} with data and also supports loops and conditions. The templates can be edited by non-programmers, eg for example your clients.

Similar libraries

They are a few similar libraries that work with docx, here’s a list of those I know a bit about:

  • docx4j :JAVA, this is probably the biggest docx library out there. They is no built in templating engine, but you can generate your docx yourself programmatically
  • docx.js: Javascript in the browser, you can create (not modify) your docx from scratch, but only do very simple things such as adding non formatted text
  • xlsx-templater : its working quite well, does the same as here but for xlsx


Functionality can be added with modules. There is yet no documentation on how to write modules yourself because the API might change in the future, but you can open an issue if you have any question about it.

Here is the list of existing modules:
