routes/web.php

<?php
  
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
    
use App\Http\Controllers\MyController;
  
/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Web Routes
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|
| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These
| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which
| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!
|
*/
  
Route::get('importExportView', [MyController::class, 'importExportView']);
Route::get('export', [MyController::class, 'export'])->name('export');
Route::post('import', [MyController::class, 'import'])->name('import');

php artisan make:import UsersImport --model=User

app/Imports/UsersImport.php

<?php
  
namespace App\Imports;
  
use App\Models\User;
use Maatwebsite\Excel\Concerns\ToModel;
use Maatwebsite\Excel\Concerns\WithHeadingRow;
  
class UsersImport implements ToModel, WithHeadingRow
{
    /**
    * @param array $row
    *
    * @return \Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model|null
    */
    public function model(array $row)
    {
        return new User([
            'name'     => $row['name'],
            'email'    => $row['email'], 
            'password' => \Hash::make($row['password']),
        ]);
    }
}

maatwebsite 3 version provide way to built export class and we have to use in controller. So it would be great way to create new Export class. So you have to run following command and change following code on that file:

php artisan make:export UsersExport --model=User

app/Exports/UsersExport.php

<?php
  
namespace App\Exports;
  
use App\Models\User;
use Maatwebsite\Excel\Concerns\FromCollection;
  
class UsersExport implements FromCollection
{
    /**
    * @return \Illuminate\Support\Collection
    */
    public function collection()
    {
        return User::all();
    }
}

Step 7: Create Controller

In this step, now we should create new controller as MyController in this path “app/Http/Controllers/MyController.php”. this controller will manage all importExportView, export and import request and return response, so put bellow content in controller file:

app/Http/Controllers/MyController.php

<?php
     
namespace App\Http\Controllers;
    
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Exports\UsersExport;
use App\Imports\UsersImport;
use Maatwebsite\Excel\Facades\Excel;
    
class MyController extends Controller
{
    /**
    * @return \Illuminate\Support\Collection
    */
    public function importExportView()
    {
       return view('import');
    }
     
    /**
    * @return \Illuminate\Support\Collection
    */
    public function export() 
    {
        return Excel::download(new UsersExport, 'users.xlsx');
    }
     
    /**
    * @return \Illuminate\Support\Collection
    */
    public function import() 
    {
        Excel::import(new UsersImport,request()->file('file'));
             
        return back();
    }
}

Step 8: Create Blade File

In Last step, let’s create import.blade.php(resources/views/import.blade.php) for layout and we will write design code here and put following code:

resources/views/import.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <title>Laravel 9 Import Export CSV File Tutorial  - onlinecode.org</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/twitter-bootstrap/4.1.3/css/bootstrap.min.css" />
</head>
<body>
   
<div class="container">
    <div class="card bg-light mt-3">
        <div class="card-header">
            Laravel 9 Import Export CSV File Tutorial  - onlinecode.org
        </div>
        <div class="card-body">
            <form action="{{ route('import') }}" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">
                @csrf
                <input type="file" name="file" class="form-control">
                <br>
                <button class="btn btn-success">Import User Data</button>
                <a class="btn btn-warning" href="{{ route('export') }}">Export User Data</a>
            </form>
        </div>
    </div>
</div>
   
</body>
</html>

Now you can check on your laravel 9 application.
