Platform Support

docxtemplater works with

  • Node.js with 0.10 and 0.11
  • Chrome tested on version 26
  • Firefox 3+ (tested on version 21, but should work with 3+)
  • Safari not tested

Internet explorer is not supported -even IE10- (basically because xhr Requests can’t be made on binary files)

You can test if everything works fine on your browser by using the test runner:


  1. docxgen.js uses [jszip.js]( to zip and unzip the docx files
  2. Optionally, if you want to be able to name the output files, you can use Downloadify.js, which is required to use method download. Be informed that it uses flash, this is why the method is not recommended. This method is howewer useful because a lot of browsers are limited for the download size with the Data-URI method. Update: I will probably implement in the future a way to use the FileSaver API, with [FileSaverJS](
