ActiveRecord import and export based on PHPExcel for Yii 2 framework.

This library is mainly designed to import data, export is in the raw condition (even it's working in basic form), under development and not documented yet.

The important notes:

  • It uses ActiveRecord models and PHPExcel library, so operating big data requires pretty good hardware, especially RAM. In case of memory shortage I can advise splitting data into smaller chunks.
  • This is not just a wrapper on some PHPExcel methods, it's a tool helping import data from Excel in human readable form with minimal configuration.
  • This is designed for periodical import.
  • The library is more effective when working with multiple related models and complex data structures.
