devlabor / laravel-csv-seeder


This package is based on "spatie/laravel-query-builder" allows you to rapidly creating API controllers for your Laravel application. This package also works with authorization policies.

Basic Usage

Create a new table seeder class: php artisan make:seeder ProductsTableSeeder and change the content to following code. The csv file must located in /database/seeds/csvs/products.csv

use \DevLabor\CsvSeeder\Database\Seeder\CsvSeeder

// ...

class ProductsTableSeeder extends CsvSeeder {
	 * UsersTableSeeder constructor.
	public function __construct()
		$this->columnMapping = [
			0 => 'article_no',
			1 => 'name',
			2 => 'text',
			3 => 'price'
	 * Run the database seeds.
	 * @return void
	public function run()
		// Recommended when importing larger CSVs
		// Uncomment the below to wipe the table clean before populating


You can install the package via composer:

composer require devlabor/laravel-csv-seeder


This CsvSeeder class is easy to use and usually works independently. Sometimes you need or want to customize the csv import file parameters.


// Database table name for seeding. Default guessed by class name.
public $table = '';
// CSV file name for seeding. Default guessed by class name.
public $filename = '';
// Table field that to be hashed, most likely a password field. If your password has a different name, please overload this variable from our seeder class.
public $hashable = 'password';
// An SQL INSERT query will execute every time this number of rows are read from the CSV. Without this, large INSERTS will silently fail.
public $insertChunkSize = 50;
// CSV delimiter
public $csvDelimiter = ';';
// Number of rows to skip at the start of the CSV
public $offsetRows = 0;
// Can be used to tell the import to trim any leading or trailing white space from the column;
public $trimWhitespace = true;
 * The mapping of CSV to table column. If not specified manually, the first row (after $offsetRows) of your CSV will be read as your table columns.
 * In order to read the first, third and fourth columns of your CSV only, use:
 * array(
 *   0 => id,
 *   2 => name,
 *   3 => description,
 * )
public $columnMapping = [];
