csv2sql – convert comma-separated-values file to sql

It was initially written by Mirek Rusin <>

I just ported it to ruby 1.9.X, I added rspec cases and yard support

Csv2sql class goes deeper into conversion process of csv files, ie:

puts"test.csv").to_inserts(:bulk => true)


start tramsaction;
insert into test_csv values
  (1, "test 1"),
  (2, "test 2"),
  (3, "test 3"),
  (4, "test 4");


puts"account_balances.csv").to_updates([nil, 'balance'], :table => 'accounts')


start transaction;
update accounts set balance = "0" where id = "0345S";
update accounts set balance = "3301.37" where id = "0252S";
update accounts set balance = "11903.33" where id = "0345G";
update accounts set balance = "47028.32" where id = "0324G";

You can use optional arguments, ie:


:bulk - to get bulk inserts

Contributing to csv2sql

  • Check out the latest master to make sure the feature hasn't been implemented or the bug hasn't been fixed yet

  • Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn't requested it and/or contributed it

  • Fork the project

  • Start a feature/bugfix branch

  • Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution

  • Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
