Awesome CSV Awesome

A carefully curated list of CSV-related tools and resources

CSV remains the most futuristic data format from the distant past.

When the final cockroach breathes her last breath, her dying act will be to scratch her date of death in a CSV file for posterity.

Footnotes

* I'm the author of NimbleText. Of course I put it first on the list. If I didn't personally rate it I wouldn't have spent so much time making and improving it.

** I wrote agnes but don't really endorse it for others to use (thus haven't migrated the source code to GitHub). It's slow and non-streaming. I'd go with papa-parse. On the plus side, agnes has a more comprehensive test suite and simpler api than most.

*** Mine too.
