Name

ngx_rds_csv - Nginx output filter module to convert Resty-DBD-Streams (RDS) to Comma-Separated Values (CSV)

Table of Contents

Status

This module is considered production ready.

Synopsis

location /foo {
    # drizzle_pass/postgres_pass/...

    rds_csv on;
    rds_csv_row_terminator "\n"; # default to "\r\n"
}

Description

This module implements an efficient output filter that converts Resty-DBD-Streams (RDS) generated by ngx_drizzle and ngx_postgres to Comma-Separated Values (CSV) format in a streaming fashion. By default, the CSV format is in compliance with RFC 4180:

http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4180

SQL NULL values will be converted to empty field value, just like empty string values.

Alternatively, you can install this module manually with the Nginx source:

Grab the nginx source code from nginx.org, for example, the version 1.7.10 (see nginx compatibility), and then build the source with this module:

 $ wget 'http://nginx.org/download/nginx-1.7.10.tar.gz'
 $ tar -xzvf nginx-1.7.10.tar.gz
 $ cd nginx-1.7.10/

 # Here we assume you would install you nginx under /opt/nginx/.
 $ ./configure --prefix=/opt/nginx \
     --add-module=/path/to/rds-csv-nginx-module

 $ make -j2
 $ make install

Download the latest version of the release tarball of this module from rds-csv-nginx-module file list.

Also, this module is included and enabled by default in the ngx_openresty bundle.
