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' });
pptx.save('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 lang="javascript" 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!

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
