Can phpdocx's code run without OpenOffice / LibreOffice ? Or is phpdocx dependant on Office ?

If so what exactly is getting called to convert HTML to DOCX ?

phpdocx only needs LibreOffice or OpenOffice to use the conversion plugin to transform DOCX to PDF, DOC to DOCX, DOCX to ODT,...

phpdocx 9 added a new conversion plugin to transform DOCX to PDF using native PHP classes.

The conversion from HTML to DOCX is done through internal PHP classes without using LibreOffice/OpenOffice.
