The "CSV Engine" is a web server offering a set of services to handle and process CSV files. One of the main feature in the current version is an editor to create an initial version of the CSV on the Web metadata standard file.
We hope that people find this tool useful and will join or contribute to the project by providing feedback, bug reports, feature requests or code contributions.
Under the hood
The tool is implemented in Python 2.7 using the FLASK web server framework and the Jinja2 template engine.
