Laravel CSV Package is a package created on top of the Laravel livewire package, and it handles importing thousands of records without any issues.

php artisan migrate

You can publish the config file with:

php artisan vendor:publish --tag="csv-config"

The layout option is for choosing which CSS Framework you are using, currently supports only tailwindcss, and we’re working on other CSS frameworks to implement in the future.

The file_upload_size is for validation rules, and it helps define the file size of the uploaded files, or. You can define this one from the livewire config file.

Optionally, you can publish the views using

php artisan vendor:publish --tag="csv-views"


CSV Importer Component
Using this package is really simple, all you need to do is implement the component inside your desired file.

    <livewire:csv-importer :model="App\Models\YourModel::class"
                            :columns-to-map="['id', 'name', 'email', 'password']"
                            :required-columns="['id', 'name', 'email']"
                                'id' => 'ID',
                                'name' => 'Name',
                                'email' => 'Email Address',
                                'password' => 'Password',
