Codeigniter Excel and PHP’s Spreadsheet Excel Writer Pear Package and how to not have to use PEAR

Filed under: codeigniter, cool, php, tip, xls — michaelangela @ 3:08 am

Well that’s a long title but it sums it up. I wanted to generate Excel from Codeigniter. Because of that I needed a way to use it whether or not PEAR is running/installed, etc. My local dev box doesn’t (yet) have it but that’s a story for another time.

The talented developers at Pizza SEO repackaged one of the recent versions of Spreadsheet Excel Writer as a set of classes together. No PEAR, no installing of separate items, etc. Normally I would like PEAR and it is on the deployment server but I wanted a portable flexbile version that worked within CodeIgniter and this fit the bill. Give them a visit! 🙂

PHP Excel Creator library | Pizza SEO

Pizza SEO has developed library for writing Excel (XLS) documents in PHP from former PEAR class Spreadsheet Excel Writer (see PEAR). We have cleaned this class, so PEAR installation is not required anymore and class is available as the standalone class.
