Some Excel and CSV utilities for PHP Fat-Free Framework.

$excel = \Sheet::instance();

// data array
$rows = [ 
		"name" => "rose",
		"color" => "red",
		"num" => 15
		"name" => "daisy",
		"color" => "yellow",
		"num" => 25,
		"name" => "orchid",
		"color" => "purple",
		"num" => 7
// header array to rename the field labels and sort/reorder the data array 
$headers = ['name'=>'Name', 'num'=>'Number', 'color'=>'Flower Color'];


In case your data array is not keyed, you can use the applyHeader method to transform the array:

$rows = [ 
$rows = \Sheet::instance()->applyHeader($rows,['name','color','num']);

Notice: The generated XLS can have problems in older versions of MS Office (Excel) with number-formatted fields not being recognized as such (displayed as text instead) and text fields, that contain line breaks can also leads to problems there (missing text).

Nevertheless, these problems do not appear when opened with LibreOffice or OpenOffice or rendered as csv with renderCSV instead and then imported to excel.
