Package of the week: Open XML SDK

The Open XML SDK provides open-source libraries for working with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents. It supports scenarios such as high-performance generation of word-processing documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, high fidelity conversion of Word documents to HTML, extraction of data from XLSX, and document modification.

using (var doc = WordprocessingDocument.Open(strDoc, true))
{
    var p = new Paragraph(new Run(new Text(
        "This is some text in a run in a paragraph.")));

    doc.MainDocumentPart.Document.Body.AppendChild(p);
}

Contribute to the week in .NET

As always, this weekly post couldn’t exist without community contributions, and I’d like to thank all those who sent links and tips. The F# section is provided by Phillip Carter, the gaming section by Stacey Haffner, the Xamarin section by Dan Rigby, and the UWP section by Michael Crump.

You can participate too. Did you write a great blog post, or just read one? Do you want everyone to know about an amazing new contribution or a useful library? Did you make or play a great game built on .NET? We’d love to hear from you, and feature your contributions on future posts. Please add your posts, it takes only a second.

This week’s post (and future posts) also contains news I first read on The ASP.NET Community Standup, on Weekly Xamarin, on F# weekly, and on The Morning Brew.
