Top 6 PHP Office Projects

  • PhpSpreadsheet

    A pure PHP library for reading and writing spreadsheet files

    Project mention: Best Excel lib for PHP | | 2021-11-18

    Well, that depends on your experience and how fast you learn new things. I don't think it's very complicated, and there is documentation and a lot of examples. So, if you follow those, it should work nicely.

  • PHPWord

    A pure PHP library for reading and writing word processing documents

    Project mention: Laravel development & production ready Docker build - help needed | | 2021-11-11

    I'd use PHPWord then, but, if it's not enough, surely go ahead and have a headless libreoffice server like here. You can probably set up your own dockerfile following the examples, as the existing projects seem a bit outdated.

  • Cloudways

  • Spout

    Read and write spreadsheet files (CSV, XLSX and ODS), in a fast and scalable way

    Project mention: Best Excel creation lib for PHP | | 2021-11-18

    We were testing PHP Spreadsheet and Spout ( We chose Spout because of its low memory footprint. It is using streams so it is much lighter than PHP Spreadsheet, although it is missing quite a bit of features that PHP Spreadsheet has.

  • PHPPowerPoint

    A pure PHP library for reading and writing presentations documents

  • officelife

    OfficeLife is the first EmpOps platform. It manages everything employees do in a company. From projects to holidays to 1:1s to teams.

    Project mention: FOSS app for calculating a payout for workers based on time worked ? | | 2021-12-05

    The website doesn't have anyway to access it and says ckming soon, but the github has a link to the beta where it has a link to set up an account:

  • ExcelAnt

    Simple yet powerful Excel manipulation library for PHP 5.4+
