README

The RdnCsv ZF2 module makes it really easy to export and import CSV files.

How to install

  1. Use composer to require the radnan/rdn-csv package:

    $ composer require radnan/rdn-csv:1.*
  2. Activate the module by including it in your application.config.php file:

    <?php
    
    return array(
       'modules' => array(
           'RdnCsv',
           // ...
       ),
    );

How to use

The module comes with two plugins - csvExport() and csvImport().

csvExport()

Export data into a downloadable CSV file using this plugin.

// inside a controller action

$header = array(
    'Year',
    'Make',
    'Model',
    'Description',
    'Price',
);
$records = array(
    array(
        '1997',
        'Ford',
        'E350',
        'ac, abs, moon',
        '3000.00',
    ),
);

return $this->csvExport('foo.csv', $header, $records);

The plugin will return a response object which you can then return from your controller action.

csvImport()

Import data from a CSV file using this plugin.

// inside a controller action

$csv = $this->csvImport('/path/to/foo.csv');

foreach ($csv as $row)
{
    var_dump($row);
    // array(
    //     'Year' => '1997',
    //     'Make' => 'Ford',
    //     'Model' => 'E350',
    //     'Description' => 'ac, abs, moon',
    //     'Price' => '3000.00',
    // )
}

The plugin returns an iterator that can be used to loop over all the rows in the CSV file.
