require section of the composer.json file for details.
PHP version support
Support for PHP versions will only be maintained for a period of six months beyond the end-of-life of that PHP version
Use composer to install PhpSpreadsheet into your project:
composer require phpoffice/phpspreadsheet
This would be the simplest way to write a spreadsheet:
U<?php require 'vendor/autoload.php'; use PhpOffice\PhpSpreadsheet\Spreadsheet; use PhpOffice\PhpSpreadsheet\Writer\Xlsx; $spreadsheet = new Spreadsheet(); $sheet = $spreadsheet->getActiveSheet(); $sheet->setCellValue('A1', 'Hello World !'); $writer = new Xlsx($spreadsheet); $writer->save('hello world.xlsx');
