You will need docxtemplater npm install docxtemplater
Then install this module: npm install docxtemplater-image-module
Your docx should contain the text: {%image}
var ImageModule=require('docxtemplater-image-module')

var opts = {}
opts.centered = false;
opts.getImage=function(tagValue, tagName) {
    return fs.readFileSync(tagValue);

opts.getSize=function(img,tagValue, tagName) {
    return [150,150];

var imageModule=new ImageModule(opts);

var zip = new JSZip(content);
var docx=new Docxtemplater()

var buffer= docx


To understand what img, tagValue, tagName mean, lets take an example :
If your template is :

and your data:


tagValue will be equal to "sampleImage.png", tagName will be equal to "myImage" and img will be what ever the getImage function returned

One of the most useful cases of this is to set the images to be the size of that image.
For this, you will need to install the npm package 'image-size' then, write:
opts = {centered:false}
opts.getImage=function(tagValue) {
    return fs.readFileSync(tagValue,'binary');
opts.getSize=function(img) {
   return [sizeObj.width,sizeObj.height];
imageModule=new ImageModule(opts);
Centering images
You can center the images using opts.centered=true or by using {%%image} instead of {%image} in your documents
Size and path based on placeholder
You can have customizable image loader using the template's placeholder name.
opts.getImage = function (tagValue, tagName) {
    if(tagName === 'logo')
        return fs.readFileSync(__dirname + '/logos/' + tagValue);

    return fs.readFileSync(__dirname + '/images/' + tagValue);

The same thing can be used to customize image size.
opts.getSize = function (img, tagValue, tagName) {
    if(tagName === 'logo')
        return [100, 100];

    return [300, 300];
For the imagereplacer to work, the image tag: {%image} needs to be in its own <w:p>, so that means that you have to put a new line after and before the tag.
You can test that everything works fine using the command mocha. This will also create some docx files under the root directory that you can open to check if the generation was correct.
Building in the browser
You can build a release for the browser with the following commands
npm install
npm run preversion
npm run compile

You will have build/imagemodule.js.
