    html-to-docx

    NPM Version

    html-to-docx is a js library for converting HTML documents to DOCX format supported by Microsoft Word 2007+, LibreOffice Writer, Google Docs, WPS Writer etc.

    It was inspired by html-docx-js project but mitigates the problem of documents generated being non-compatiable with word processors like Google Docs and libreOffice Writer that doesn't support altchunks feature.

    html-to-docx earlier used to use libtidy to clean up the html before parsing, but had to remove it since it was causing so many dependency issues due to node-gyp.

    Disclaimer

    Even though there is an instance of html-to-docx running in production, please ensure that it covers all the cases that you might be encountering usually, since this is not a complete solution.

    Currently it doesn't work with browser directly, but it was tested against React.

    Installation

    Use the npm to install foobar.

    npm install html-to-docx

    Notes

    Currently page break can be implemented by having div with classname "page-break" or style "page-break-after" despite the values of the "page-break-after", and contents inside the div element will be ignored. <div class="page-break" style="page-break-after: always;"></div>


    CSS list-style-type for <ol> element are now supported. Just do something like this in the HTML:

      <ol style="list-style-type:lower-alpha;">
        <li>List item</li>
        ...
      </ol>
    

    List of supported list-style-types:

    • upper-alpha, will result in A. List item
    • lower-alpha, will result in a. List item
    • upper-roman, will result in I. List item
    • lower-roman, will result in i. List item
    • lower-alpha-bracket-end, will result in a) List item
    • decimal-bracket-end, will result in 1) List item
    • decimal-bracket, will result in (1) List item
    • decimal, (the default) will result in 1. List item

    Also you could add attribute data-start="n" to start the numbering from the n-th.

    <ol data-start="2"> will start the numbering from ( B. b. II. ii. 2. )
