Requirements

This plugin requires Craft CMS 3.0.0-beta.23 or later.

Installation

To install the plugin, follow these instructions.

  1. Open your terminal and go to your Craft project:

     cd /path/to/project
    
  2. Then tell Composer to load the plugin:

     composer require superbig/craft3-beam
    
  3. In the Control Panel, go to Settings → Plugins and click the “Install” button for Beam.

Using Beam

The starting point when working with Beam is to create a instance:

{% set options = {
    header: ['Email', 'Name'],
    content: [
        [ 'test@example.com', 'John Doe' ],
        [ 'another+test@example.com', 'Jane Doe' ],
        [ 'third+test@example.com', 'Trond Johansen' ],
    ]
} %}
{% set beam = craft.beam.create(options) %}

This will return a BeamModel behind the scenes.

If you want to append content dynamically, say from a loop, you can use the append method:

{% set myUserQuery = craft.users()
    .group('authors') %}

{# Fetch the users #}
{% set users = myUserQuery.all() %}

{# Display the list #}
{% for user in users %}
    {% do beam.append([user.username, user.name, user.email]) %}
{% endfor %}

To generate an CSV:

{% do beam.csv() %}

To generate an XLSX:

{% do beam.xlsx() %}

Changing config on the fly

To set the header of the file (the first row):

{% do beam.setHeader([ 'Username', 'Name', 'Email' ]) %}

To set the filename:

{% set currentDate = now|date('Y-m-d') %}
{% do beam.setFilename('report-#{currentDate}') %}

To overwrite the content:

{% do beam.setContent([
    [ 'test@example.com', 'John Doe' ],
    [ 'another+test@example.com', 'Jane Doe' ],
    [ 'third+test@example.com', 'Trond Johansen' ],
]) %}

Custom cell formatting is supported for XLSX:

{% set options = {
    header: ['Email', 'Name', { text: 'Number', type: 'number' }, { text: 'Date', type: 'date' }],
    content: [
        [ 'test@example.com', 'John Doe', 100000, '2022-06-10'],
        [ 'another+test@example.com', 'Jane Doe', 252323, '2022-06-22'],
        [ 'third+test@example.com', 'Trond Johansen', 30, '2022-06-22'],
        [ 'third+test@example.com', 'Trond Johansen', 6233, '2023-06-22'],
    ]
} %}
{% set beam = craft.beam.create(options) %}
{%  do beam.xlsx() %}

These types are supported:
