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. There 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. Here is the list of existing modules:
