Formatting data to the comma-separated values format is a simple task, but this library aims to make it even easier.
Rows are components within tables, which act as composites. A serializer visits each row, formatting as it goes.
Rows are added to a table:
CSVRow *header = [[CSVRow alloc] initWithValues:@[@"Name", @"Age", @"Country"]]; CSVRow *ryan = [[CSVRow alloc] initWithValues:@[@"Ryan Davies", @20, @"England"]]; CSVRow *john = [[CSVRow alloc] initWithValues:@[@"John Smith", @34, @"France"]]; CSVTable *table = [[CSVTable alloc] initWithRows:@[header, ryan, john]];
NSMutableString *output = [[NSMutableString alloc] init]; CSVSerializer *serializer = [[CSVExporter alloc] initWithOutput:output]; [exporter serialize:table];
Initializing a serializer with a mutable string both exposes for testing and allows the same string to be used in multiple serializations, or other processes.
The above example results in the output:
Name, Age, Country Ryan Davies, 20, England John Smith, 34, France
Importing this into Excel or Numbers results in a properly formatted spreadsheet.
CSV is installed using CocoaPods by adding
pod 'CSV', '~> 0.0.1' to your project's Podfile.
