CSV Source for Écoule

An Écoule source module that reads data stored in a Comma-separated values-file, abbreviated CSV.

This project includes the following third party modules:

The creators of these modules does not have anything to do with the CSV Source for Écoule-project besides that, please direct all the issues and bugs to the right channels. The bugtracker for this project is located here: CSV Source for Écoule Issue tracker.

Usage

This is a Source module for the Écoule-engine, and should be included in the source section of an Écoule-configuration.

var Ecoule = require('ecoule'),
    csvSource = require('ecoule-source-csv');

var myEcoule({
    sources: [
        csvSource({
            // configration
        })
    ]
    // ...
});

Configuration

The configuration passed to the CSV source is an object with the following keys.

  • title The title of the source used internally in Écoule.

  • file The location of the CSV-file(s), a glob pattern can be used.

  • headers By default the source will use the first line in the CSV-file as the headers, resulting in named key-values in the returned data-object. If an array of strings are passed in, these names will be used as the key-names. If the value is a Boolean false it will import the data as lists, the returned data-object will be an object with a single key, data, that store the data.

Further configuration parameters has been planed, and the names of these configuration keys could change in a future release.

Development

After cloning the project you will have to run npm install in the project root. This will install the various grunt plugins and other dependencies.

QA tools

The QA tools rely on the Grunt task runner. To run any of these tools, you will need the grunt-cli installed globally on your system. This is easily done by typing the following in a terminal.

$ npm install grunt-cli -g

The unit tests will need the Buster unit test framework.

$ npm install -g buster

These two commands will install the buster and grunt commands on your system. These can be removed by typing npm uninstall buster -g and npm uninstall grunt-cli -g.

Unit Tests

The test suit can be run by typing the following in the project root.

$ npm test

When developing you want to run the script watcher. Navigate to the project root and type the following in your terminal.

$ grunt watch:scripts

This will run the jshint and tests each time a file has been modified.

API Documentation

The project uses YUIDocs that can be generated by running grunt docs. This will create a site with documentation in a folder called docs/ in the project root which can be served on port 8888 by typing grunt connect:docs. If you want to generate docs on file modification you can run grunt watch:docs.
