Populate documents (eg word) that have place holders


Would it be possible to build a node which populates eg a word document that has place holders inside it?

Example a template is stored in Nextcloud and it contains a place holder eg {{name}} , A workflow pics up the template and then a node populates the place holders and then saves the word document back to another Nextcloud folder.

Hope you understand the question

Kind regards

Some time ago this case was opened

Not sure if this is currently available but this is quite useful to generate documents dynamically.

@Miquel_Colomer Is sadly still not directly available in n8n as we are still evaluating how we want to make such a feature available inside of n8n.

@Mattias_Larsson Sounds very interesting. Just checked there seem to be multiple npm module which could be used to create such a node. Some I found within a few minutes:
