Require this package in your composer.json and update composer. This will download the package and PHPExcel of PHPOffice.

composer require "macellan/laravel-excel:2.2"

In Laravel 5.5 or higher, this package will be automatically discovered and you can safely skip the following two steps.

If using Laravel 5.4 or lower, after updating composer, add the ServiceProvider to the providers array in config/app.php


You can use the facade for shorter code; if using Laravel 5.4 or lower, add this to your aliases:

'Excel' => Macellan\Excel\Facades\Excel::class,

The class is bound to the ioC as excel

$excel = App::make('excel');

To publish the config settings in Laravel 5 use:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Macellan\Excel\ExcelServiceProvider"

This will add an excel.php config file to your config folder.
