    This package is a stringifier converting records into a CSV text and implementing the Node.js stream.Transform API. It also provides the easier synchronous and callback-based APIs for conveniency. It is both extremely easy to use and powerful. It was first released in 2010 and is tested against big data sets by a large community.

    Usage

    The module is built on the Node.js Stream API. For the sake of simplicity, a simple callback API is also provided. To give you a quick look, here's an example of the callback API:

    var stringify = require('csv-stringify');
    
    input = [ [ '1', '2', '3', '4' ], [ 'a', 'b', 'c', 'd' ] ];
    stringify(input, function(err, output){
      output.should.eql('1,2,3,4\na,b,c,d\n');
    });

    Development

    Tests are executed with mocha. To install it, run npm install followed by npm test. It will install mocha and its dependencies in your project "node_modules" directory and run the test suite. The tests run against the CoffeeScript source files.

    To generate the JavaScript files, run npm run build.

    The test suite is run online with Travis. See the Travis definition file to view the tested Node.js version.
