CSV parsing implementing the Node.js `stream.Transform` API
Latest commit 97c2805 Aug 27, 2018


Build Status

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.

Documentation for the "csv-parse" package is available here.
