@Blade to Excel

We can utilise the magic of Laravel's Blade engine to power our Excel export. Sharing a view, loading a view per sheet, creating a html table inside a view, basic CSS styling, ...

Loading a view for a single sheet

We can load a view for every sheet we create with ->loadView().

Excel::create('New file', function($excel) {

    $excel->sheet('New sheet', function($sheet) {

        $sheet->loadView('folder.view');

    });

});

Using different views for different sheets

Excel::create('New file', function($excel) {

    $excel->sheet('First sheet', function($sheet) {

        $sheet->loadView('view_first');
    });

    $excel->sheet('Second sheet', function($sheet) {

        $sheet->loadView('view_second');
    });

});

Sharing a view for all sheets

We can share a view for all sheets with shareView().

Excel::shareView('folder.view')->create();

Unsetting a view for a sheet

When we are using a shared view, but we don't want to use a view for the current sheet, we can use ->unsetView().

$sheet->unsetView();
