A Big thanks to thanks to Spout.

Fast Excel is a Laravel package for importing and exporting spreadsheets.  It is capable of processing large files, all while keeping the memory usage low.

⚡ Install via composer:

composer require rap2hpoutre/fast-excel

Export a Model to .xlsx file:

use Rap2hpoutre\FastExcel\FastExcel;
use App\User;

// Load users
$users = User::all();

// Export all users
(new FastExcel($users))->export('file.xlsx');

⏬ Export

Export a Model or a Collection:

$list = collect([
    [ 'id' => 1, 'name' => 'Jane' ],
    [ 'id' => 2, 'name' => 'John' ],

(new FastExcel($list))->export('file.xlsx');

Export xlsxods and csv:

$invoices = App\Invoice::orderBy('created_at', 'DESC')->get();
(new FastExcel($invoices))->export('invoices.csv');

Export only some attributes specifying columns names:

(new FastExcel(User::all()))->export('users.csv', function ($user) {
    return [
        'Email' => $user->email,
        'First Name' => $user->firstname,
        'Last Name' => strtoupper($user->lastname),

Download (from a controller method):

return (new FastExcel(User::all()))->download('file.xlsx');

⬆ Import

import returns a Collection:

$collection = (new FastExcel)->import('file.xlsx');

Import a csv with specific delimiter, enclosure characters and “gbk” encoding:

$collection = (new FastExcel)->configureCsv(';', '#', '\n', 'gbk')->import('file.csv');

Import and insert to the database:

$users = (new FastExcel)->import('file.xlsx', function ($line) {
    return User::create([
        'name' => $line['Name'],
        'email' => $line['Email']
