PHPExcel for laravel 5

I want to use my PHPExcel Laravel application. I installed the library in the vendor directory. What is the method to call my controller and thereby implement this example: http://g-ernaelsten.developpez.com/tutoriels/excel2007/?page=fondements#L2.1
In the posts I read it just had to write to the header

use PHPExcel;

use PHPExcel_IOFactory;


It's not sufficient

Who can help me start with this library? and integrate it into my project Laravel. Thank

Answer

Maatwebsite made a built a Laravel package for PHPExcel. You can find it here https://github.com/Maatwebsite/Laravel-Excel together with the documentation for it.

If for any reasons you prefer to not use this, you need to

include '/vendor/PHPExcel/PHPExcel';
include '/vendor/PHPExcel/PHPExcel/Writer/Excel5.php';
