CSVParse for Node.js

IssuesGitHub

Vanilla JavaScript (IIFE) for older browsers

Table of Contents

The IIFE distribution targets browsers which don't support ECMAScript modules.

The files are located inside the packages/csv-parse/dist/iife folder. Import them inside your project or use NPM to download the package and to reference them.

It is globally available in the page context with:

  • Stream and callback API: csv_parse.parse(/* arguments */);
  • Sync API: csv_parse_sync.parse(/* arguments */);

Example

A working demo is available in the demo/browser directory:

With Express, expose the files with:

const app = express();
app.use('/lib/parse/',
  express.static(`node_modules/csv-parse/dist/iife/`));
app.listen(3000);

The HTML code looks like:

<script src="/lib/parse/index.js"></script>
<script>
  csv_parse.parse(records, options, (err, data) => {
    console.info(data)
  });
</script>

If you wish to use the sync API, use:

<script src="/lib/parse/sync.js"></script>
<script>
  const data = csv_parse_sync.parse(records, options);
</script>
