Very robust

For each feature, we write a full suite of tests with real Word documents to ensure that the generated documents are correct. Our current mutation testing score measured by Stryker Mutator is at 90%, which is very high and allows us to develop features without fearing of breaking existing usecases.

The docxtemplater module helped our company a lot - it works well, even with a complex setup. I would personally like to thank the author, Edgar Hipp, for quick responses and fixes if they were needed. Edgar generally responded to our emails within a working day and fixed most bugs within 2 working days.

I can highly recommend docxtemplater as a library for generating documents from custom templates. It is easily extendible, very fast and easy to use. Edgar has been extremely helpful and always available to get the most of the library. One of the best support experience I have ever made!

Dwight Kelly President at Apago Inc

We needed a comprehensive templating engine for Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint that allowed us to modify existing documents. Our requirements included updating styles for any element and replacing images & text placeholders. After testing all available commercial and open-source libraries we selected docxtemplater. The docxtemplater team [or Edgar] has provided awesome support - answering our questions, fixing problems and continuously improving the product's capabilities. We couldn't ask for a better partner!

Tomas Theunissen Senior developer at MoreApp

We have been using docxtemplater to generate Word documents for quite a while and it has been a joy to use. Besides this awesome library, the support by the docxtemplater team is one of the best, replying to our question within the hour and even including a fix!

Frequently asked questions

Is there a way to test the software or have a free trial ?

We do not provide a free trial period, but we do have two week 100% money back guarantee. We also provide a live demo site which has multiple modules enabled, for example, you have a demo specific for the HTML module. On the demo site, you can also upload your own templates, which makes it quite good to see if it would work well for your usecase. If something is missing on the demo site, we can show it to you on a video call a time that works for both of us (contact us per email).

What is the difference between plans and modules ?

Docxtemplater is an open-source project, which has basic features for templating. All paid features come in forms of modules, for example the HTML module allows to insert formatted text with bold, italic, links. All modules can be bought separately for a yearly fee. There are also two plans, the PRO plan and the ENTREPRISE plan that gives you access to a set of modules.

Does the license allow me to use the software in a SaaS product ?

Yes, the license model is suitable for Software as a Service businesses. As long as you are the entity running docxtemplater software, you can use the standard licenses.

If you need to redistribute the software by installing the software on your customers servers, this will need a specific "appliance" license. The standard license does not allow to redistribute the software. The Appliance license plan is 4500€ per year for PRO and 10000€ per year for ENTREPRISE version. It allows you to distribute the modules contained in the PRO or ENTREPRISE module as part of your application. You are not allowed to resell the modules as is.

What kind of support will I get ?

For any purchase that you make (Plan or Module), you will get included support per email to answer all your questions. Usually, we respond in 24 hours, on business days. Bugfixes are also included in the support plan. For new features, it depends whether the feature makes sense for other customers and if the time required to implement it is not too long.

To have faster answers, please include the used modules, the template document, the generated document, or the expected output, your JSON data, and code relevant to the generation.

How will I get access to the modules ?

The modules are installed via npm, you will receive a secret, unique url with wich you can do so you will do : npm install --save <secret-url>

The compiled files for browser usage are also bundled inside the package.

Can I convert the generated document to a PDF file ?

It is not possible to convert docx to PDF with docxtemplater, because docxtemplater is a templating engine and doesn’t know how to render a given document. We recommend to use libreoffice headless for a free tool or PDFTron for a paid alternative.
