Patrick Brouwers is doing an awesome job creating a quality Laravel package to integrate with Excel. The newest version can import Excel files.

Laravel Excel 3.0 was released a while ago and completely redesigned the architecture behind exports. Our next target was to do the same paradigm shift for imports. Development took some time, because we wanted to get it right from the start.
