Quick Start Guide

PptxGenJS PowerPoint presentations are created via JavaScript by following 4 basic steps:

  1. Create a new Presentation
  2. Add a Slide
  3. Add one or more objects (Tables, Shapes, Images, Text and Media) to the Slide
  4. Save the Presentation
var pptx = new PptxGenJS();
var slide = pptx.addNewSlide();
slide.addText('Hello World!', { x:1.5, y:1.5, fontSize:18, color:'363636' });'Sample Presentation');

That's really all there is to it!

Full PowerPoint Shape Library

If you are planning on creating Shapes (basically anything other than Text, Tables or Rectangles), then you'll want to include the pptxgen.shapes.js library.

The shapes file contains a complete PowerPoint Shape object array thanks to the officegen project.

<script src="PptxGenJS/dist/pptxgen.shapes.js"></script>

Typescript Definitions

As of version 2.3.0, typescript definitions are available (pptxgen.d.ts).

Issues / Suggestions

Please file issues or suggestions on the issues page on github, or even better, submit a pull request. Feedback is always welcome!

When reporting issues, please include a code snippet or a link demonstrating the problem. Here is a small jsFiddle that is already configured and uses the latest PptxGenJS code.

Need Help?

Sometimes implementing a new library can be a difficult task and the slightest mistake will keep something from working. We've all been there!

If you are having issues getting a presentation to generate, check out the demos in the examples directory. There are demos for both Nodejs and client-browsers that contain working examples of every available library feature.

Unimplemented Features

The PptxGenJS library is not designed to replicate all the functionality of PowerPoint, meaning several features are not on the development roadmap.

These include:

  • Animations
  • Importing Existing Presentations and/or Templates
  • Outlines
  • SmartArt
