Editing Microsoft Word documents with Elixir

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to modify or edit a Microsoft Word Document with Elixir.

The idea is to have a Word Document as a Template, open it with Elixir and create a new document based on information I have from my database.

Can you please suggest a library?

Thanks in advance for your help,

Best regards,

I did a review a short while ago and came up short with Elixir libraries for Word, at least actively maintained. With Microsoft’s OOXML, I really think you want actively maintained.

Better luck in Erlang land perhaps?

Luckily there are plenty of options outside of the BEAM ecosystem at least.

At the end of the day, Word files are zipped XML-packages ready to be explored.
