Library for quickly loading and generating Excel files. Data can be loaded from and converted to an array, an Excel/CSV file or PHPExcel object.

Great advantage of this library is the small amount of code needed to perform an import or export of data, given one of the above formats.


Use Composer to install the library.

$ composer require endroid/simple-excel



use Endroid\SimpleExcel\SimpleExcel;

$excel = new SimpleExcel();
    'Players' => [
        ['name' => 'L. Messi', 'club' => 'Barcelona'],
        ['name' => 'C. Ronaldo', 'club' => 'Real Madrid']

$excel->saveToOutput('players.csv', ['Players']);

You can also use the saveToString and getHeadersByFilename methods to build a Response object instead of directly outputting to the browser.
