DESCRIPTION:

Ever needed to import csv files where every row needs to be converted into a model?

The CSV importer turns every row of a CSV file into an object. Each column is matched and tested against a given class. You can provide a dictionary with translations between the CSV column names and the object properties.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • Probably no windows support right now because of different line endings.

SYNOPSIS:

require 'csv_importer'

class Product < Struct.new(:title, :price, :brand, :image); end
file = File.open("filename.csv", "rb")
importer = CSV_Importer::Importer.new(file, Product)
products = importer.objects

or

require 'csv_importer'

class Product < Struct.new(:title, :price, :brand, :image); end
csv_string = "title, the price, the brand \n jeans, 10, fashionable"
dictionary = {"the brand"=>"brand", "the price"=>"price"}
importer = CSV_Importer::Importer.new(csv_string, Product, dictionary)
products = importer.objects

For use with ActiveRecord objects you can provide an argument to call save on every product when created

products = importer.object(true)

REQUIREMENTS:

  • This gem uses the standard ruby CSV libary. Ruby 1.9 will have a new library which will probably be compatible.

INSTALL:

sudo gem install csv_importer
