Stencil Template Engine

Stencil is a templating engine to produce Office Open XML (mostly Microsoft Office's Word .docx files) from Java programs. It has a simple syntax and no programming is needed to write or modify document templates.

The aim of this project is to provide an easy-to-use and freely available tool for generating office documents.

You can use either Microsoft Word or LibreOffice to edit the document templates. The template expressions are just simple texts, and you can even colour-code them to make the template more readable.
