A Comma-Separated Values parser for JavaScript


Built to the rfc4180 standard, with adjustable strictness:

  • optional carriage returns for non-microsoft sources
  • automatically type-cast numeric an boolean values
  • An optional "relaxed" mode which:
  • ignores blank lines
  • ignores garbage following quoted tokens
  • does not enforce a consistent record length

Example:

Live Example

Install

npm install csv-js --save-dev

Use:

Simple:

    var rows = CSV.parse("one,two,three\n4,5,6")
    // rows equals [["one","two","three"],[4,5,6]]

jQuery AJAX suggestion:

$.get("csv.txt")
    .pipe( CSV.parse )
    .done( function(rows) {
       for( var i =0; i < rows.length; i++){
           console.log(rows[i])
       }
 });

Options:

CSV.RELAXED

Try this first if you're having problems with data parsing. Enables a "relaxed" strictness mode. Default: false

  • Ignores blank lines;
  • Ignores garbage characters following a close quote
  • Ignores inconsistent records lengths
  • Ignore whitespace around quoted strings.

CSV.IGNORE_RECORD_LENGTH

If relaxed mode is not already enabled, ignores inconsistent records lengths Default: false

CSV.IGNORE_QUOTES

Treats all values as literal, including surrounding quotes. For use if CSV isn't well formatted. This will disable escape sequences. Default: false

CSV.LINE_FEED_OK

Suppress exception for missing carriage returns (specification requires CRLF line endings). Default: true

CSV.CARRIAGE_RETURN_OK

Suppress exception for missing line feeds (specification requires CRLF line endings). Default: true

CSV.DETECT_TYPES

Automatically type-cast numeric and boolean values such as "false", "null", and "0.1", but not "abcd", "Null", or ".1". Customizable by overriding CSV.resolve_type(str) which returns value. Default: true

CSV.IGNORE_QUOTE_WHITESPACE

Detects and ignores whitespace before a quoted string which, per spec, should be treated as the start of an unescaped value. Default: true

CSV.DEBUG

Enables debug logging to console. Default: false

CSV.COLUMN_SEPARATOR

Split columns by this character. Default "," (comma).

Exceptions Thrown:

"UNEXPECTED_END_OF_FILE" or CSV.ERROR_EOF

Fired when file ends unexpectedly. Eg. File ends during an open escape sequence. Example:

Uncaught UNEXPECTED_END_OF_FILE at char 72 : ption,Price\n1997,Ford,E350,"ac, abs, moon,3000.00

"UNEXPECTED_CHARACTER" or CSV.ERROR_CHAR

Fired when an invalid character is detected. Eg. A non-comma after the close of an quoted value. Example:

Uncaught UNEXPECTED_CHARACTER at char 250 : rand Cherokee,"MUST SELL!\nair, moon roof, loaded"z

"UNEXPECTED_END_OF_RECORD" or CSV.ERROR_EOL

Fired when a record ends before the expected number of fields is read (as determined by first row). Example:

Uncaught UNEXPECTED_END_OF_RECORD at char 65 : ,Description,Price\n1997,Ford,E350,"ac, abs, moon"\n

Warnings:

"UNEXPECTED_WHITESPACE" or CSV.WARN_WHITESPACE

Appears when whitespace is encountered outside of a quoted value, only if CSV.IGNORE_QUOTE_WHITESPACE is disabled. Example:

UNEXPECTED_WHITESPACE at char 330 : e,false,123,45.6\n.7,8.,9.1.2,null,undefined\nNull, "
