CSV Parser for Node.js

Build Status NPM NPM

Part of the CSV module, this project is a parser converting CSV text input into arrays or objects. It implements the Node.js stream.Transform API. It also provides a simple callback-based API for convenience. It is both extremely easy to use and powerful. It was first released in 2010 and is used against big data sets by a large community.

  • Simplicity with the optional callback API
  • Support delimiters, quotes, escape characters and comments
  • Line breaks discovery
  • Support big datasets
  • Complete test coverage and samples for inspiration
  • No external dependencies
