Addon by Roorda ICT

Entries Export Main Screenshot

Banner

This is a simple package that exports your entries to xlsx/csv/ods/html format.

Features

  • Exporting entries from the collection listings.
  • Exporting a full collection from the utility page.
  • Tries to export to a human-readable format. This means that linked Entries will not export id's but their titles, the same goes for linked users etc.

Installation

To install this addon, use composer to require the package in your project:

composer require roorda-ict/statamic-entries-export

Usage

Usage is pretty easy:

  • For a subset of entries: navigate to a collection listing and start exporting entries.
  • For an entire collection of entries: go to Utilities > Export entries, choose your collection and click the 'Export entries' button.

Configuration

If you want to update any of the defaults, start by publishing your configuration file:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider=RoordaIct\\EntriesExport\\ServiceProvider

This will publish the entries-export.php file to the config directory. This is the file you need to update to make any configuration changes.

More granular export permission

By default, users that have the 'Utilities > Export entries' permission can export the entries that they may view. If you want to make this stricter, you can update the config and set it to whatever you like. For example, you might only want to let users export the entries that they may update.

To do this you update the value of the permission key from view to update in the configuration file.

Export format

By default, we export to the xlsx format, however you can configure this to any supported format. The supported formats are found in the configuration file, at the export_format key.

Excluding field types

By default, we do not export the section and hidden field types. If you need to add or remove field types, update the value of the excluded_field_types key in the configuration file.

Custom exporter

If you want more control in how your export is generated, you can create your own exporter. Make sure to extend the RoordaIct\EntriesExport\Exports\EntryCollectionExport class.

The heavy lifting of creating the Excel sheet is done through the Laravel Excel library. If you need more support on how to create your own exportable, please refer to their documentation.

After you created your own exporter, you can update the value of the exporter key in the configuration file.
