Customizable export and print functionality for Filament Admin Panel.

This package provides a bulk action and header action to export your filament tables easily.





composer require alperenersoy/filament-export

Configuring for Standalone Table Builder (Experimental)

To use this package in a standalone table builder instead of Filament Admin Panel you need to follow these steps. Otherwise, some features such as print and preview may not work properly.

  1. Import filament-export.css in your /resources/app.css
@import '../../vendor/alperenersoy/filament-export/resources/css/filament-export.css';
  1. Import filament-export.js in your /resources/app.js
import '../../vendor/alperenersoy/filament-export/resources/js/filament-export.js';
  1. Compile your assets
npm run dev


Simple Usage

Bulk Action

You can export selected rows with the bulk action.

Filament Admin Panel


Filament Table Builder

protected function getTableBulkActions(): array
    return [

Header Action

You can filter, search, sort and export your table with the header action.

Filament Admin Panel


Filament Table Builder

protected function getTableHeaderActions(): array
    return [

Since ButtonAction is deprecated you may use this action with ->button() instead.

Both actions provide functions for configuration.

        'name' => fn (?Model $record) => strtoupper($record->name),
    ]) // Manually format states for a specific column

You can also use default bulk action and header action functions to customize actions.

Performance Tips for Large Datasets

  • Since header action does server-side pagination you may choose header action over bulk action.
  • You may disable preview.
  • You may enable direct download.


Publish configuration

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="AlperenErsoy\FilamentExport\FilamentExportServiceProvider" --tag="config"

You can configure these settings:

return [
    'default_format' => 'xlsx',
    'time_format' => 'M_d_Y-H_i',
    'default_page_orientation' => 'portrait',
    'disable_additional_columns' => false,
    'disable_filter_columns' => false,
    'disable_file_name' => false,
    'disable_preview' => false,
    'use_snappy' => false,
    'action_icon' => 'heroicon-o-document-download',
    'preview_icon' => 'heroicon-o-eye',
    'export_icon' => 'heroicon-o-download',
    'print_icon' => 'heroicon-o-printer',
    'cancel_icon' => 'heroicon-o-x-circle'

Overriding Views

Publish views

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="AlperenErsoy\FilamentExport\FilamentExportServiceProvider" --tag="views"

This package has two views:

  1. "components\table_view.blade.php" view is used for preview.

  2. "pdf.blade.php" view is used as pdf export template.

  3. "print.blade.php" view is used as print template.

Using Custom Variables In Templates

        'myVariable' => 'My Variable'

or use closures

    ->extraViewData(fn ($action) => [
        'recordCount' => $action->getRecords()->count()

Then use them in the templates as regular blade variables:

{{ $myVariable }}

Using Snappy

By default, this package uses dompdf as pdf generator.

If you want to use Snappy instead you need to install barryvdh/laravel-snappy to your project and configure it yourself. (See barryvdh/laravel-snappy for more information.)

To use snappy for PDF exports:

  1. You can simply add ->snappy() to your actions.


  1. You can update the config file to use it as default.
    'use_snappy' => true,
