  • php-export-data

    Discontinued PHP class to export data in CSV, TSV, or Excel XML (aka SpreadsheeML) format to a file or directly to the browser

    https://github.com/elidickinson/php-export-data is unmaintained / archived too

  • PhpSpreadsheet

    A pure PHP library for reading and writing spreadsheet files

    I think https://github.com/PHPOffice/PhpSpreadsheet is what you're looking for. I've been using it for many years for an export generator, well maintained and working nicely.

  • Spout

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

    We were testing PHP Spreadsheet and Spout (https://github.com/box/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.
