A simple wrapper class for flynsarmy/csv-seeder; Makes it easier to do bulk imports of CSV files in one seeder.

Release History

  • 1.0.0 - Initial release.


In your project, bring in the dependency with Composer

composer require 'geniusfactor/fibr-csv'

Adding the following entry to your .env file will report each CSV file imported (defaults to false)



  • Create a new Seeder (php artisan make:seeder {SeederName} )
  • Change the Seeder to inherit from \FIBR\Seeders\CsvSeed
  • Define an array of the table names and paths (relative to the project root) to your associated CSV files.
  • Add your seeder to your DatabaseSeeder class
  • php artisan migrate db:seed to test!

Code Sample

Your Seeder can look as simple as this:


class seed_geo_tables extends \FIBR\Seeders\CsvSeed
    public function __construct()

    * Run the database seeds.
    * @return void
    public function run()
        $tables = array(
            'countries'      => 'database/csv/common/geo/countries.csv',
            'territories'    => 'database/csv/common/geo/territories.csv',
            'municipalities' => 'database/csv/common/geo/municipalities.csv',
            'regions'        => 'database/csv/common/geo/regions.csv',
