Table Exports

The Table component supports Exports. But first, you must register a supporting route using the spladeTable() method on the Route facade. As of version 0.6, the automatic installer does this for you. If you need to register the route manually, make sure it uses the web and splade Middleware, for example, in web.php:

Route::middleware('splade')->group(function () {

Lastly, you need to install the maatwebsite/excel package. Read the installation documentation carefully. If you want to export to PDF, you must install additional libraries.

Configure an Export

You may enable exporting with the export() method on the SpladeTable instance. It will configure an Excel Export by default.

public function configure(SpladeTable $table)

Of course, you may customize the export or add multiple exports.

use Maatwebsite\Excel\Excel;
public function configure(SpladeTable $table)
label: 'CSV export',
filename: 'projects.csv',
type: Excel::CSV

Customizing the export

The column method has additional arguments you may use to customize the export. With the exportAs argument, you may transform the value or exclude the column from the export:

->column('email', exportAs: false)
->column('reference', exportAs: fn ($reference) => "#REF-{$reference}");

The exportFormat allows you to format the column, for example, to indicate that the column represents a currency:

use PhpOffice\PhpSpreadsheet\Style\NumberFormat;
$table->column('amount', exportFormat: NumberFormat::FORMAT_CURRENCY_EUR_SIMPLE);

Lastly, with the exportStyling method, you may style the column with an array or a callable:

use PhpOffice\PhpSpreadsheet\Style\Style;
->column('name', exportStyling: ['font' => ['bold' => true]])
->column('email', exportStyling: function (Style $style) {


Just like Form Requests, you may use the authorize method to determine if the user has the authority to perform a Bulk Action:

class Projects extends AbstractTable
public function authorize(Request $request)
return $request->user()->is_admin;
