About

Customizable, transducer-based CSV parser/object mapper and transformer.

Partially ported and extended from the Clojure versions of the ws-ldn-1 and resonate-2014 workshop repos.

Features

The parser supports customizable delimiters, quoted and unquoted cells, line breaks within quoted cells. Being transducer based, memory usage is kept at a minimum by only processing single lines of (pre-split) text. For CSV records spanning multiple lines (due to line breaks), new results are only emitted/processed downstream once a logical CSV row is complete.

Also, being transducer based means the parser can be easily integrated into more complex data preparation, cleaning or conversion workflows. See @thi.ng/transducers for more details/ideas.
