Add-On Type(s)

Extension, Module


Yes, you can FINALLY export channel entries and comments as Excel with Export It! In fact, you can do a whole lot more than that with the CP Export Panel and the complete REST API. Build iPhone and Blackberry Apps. Integrate EE with your systems and create a complete experience.

First, there’s a complete Control Panel module, which allows for export of members, channel entries, mailing lists and comments. You have a variety of export formats available depending on which type of data you’re trying to export which are JSON, XML, ExpressionEngine Member XML, Disqus XML Excel TSV files.

The other side is the REST API. The REST API allows common HTTP REST requests to be performed against your ExpressionEngine site to return data in either JSON or XML formats. The REST API works against channel entries, mailing lists, comments and members. Future updates will include Category, Forum and others. (If you’d like your add-on to have methods please let me know.)

Export It supports most custom fieldtypes such as Playa, Assets, Channel Files, Channel Videos, VMG Chosen Member Matrix, Securit:ee, CartThrob and Tagger.

NOTE: Export It requires having an encryption key set within your config.php file.

Includes 30 days of free, developer, support!

Really nice add-on that does exactly as advertised. Lots of nice features, and a solid foundation should you need to customize it. Eric has great support. Looking forward to seeing this add-on evolve.

The ability to export to Excel makes a big difference. If you could get it to work with 64M of PHP memory it would get 5 stars!

Just installed it with EE 2.5.2 and it performed an export to MS Excel flawlessly.

Too many errors from the get-go, getting refund. Extension won’t install, channel export lacks options and produces nothing but a MySQL error.
