csvtomd: markdown tables made easy

Version 0.1.0

Convert your CSV files into Markdown tables.

Tables Generator is a fantastic web tool for converting tabular data into all sorts of table layouts. I like how it lets me import CSV files, but I need the ability to convert many CSV files in batch for a docset on which I’m working.

I built csvtomd to convert one or more CSV files into nicely-padded Markdown tables. Now you can build your tables in Excel and convert them for use in GitHub, Bitbucket, or Mou Markdown files without having to construct them by hand.

Usage

Input

File: thrones.csv

First Name,Last Name,Location,Allegiance
Mance,Rayder,North of the Wall,Wildlings
Margaery,Tyrell,The Reach,House Tyrell
Danerys,Targaryen,Meereen,House Targaryen
Tyrion,Lannister,King's Landing,House Lannister

Markdown Table

First Name Last Name Location Allegiance
Mance Rayder North of the Wall Wildlings
Margaery Tyrell The Reach House Tyrell
Danerys Targaryen Meereen House Targaryen
Tyrion Lannister King’s Landing House Lannister

Raw Output

Command: ./csvtomd.py thrones.csv

First Name  |  Last Name  |  Location           |  Allegiance

Mance       |  Rayder     |  North of the Wall  |  Wildlings

Danerys     |  Targaryen  |  Meereen            |  House Targaryen
Tyrion      |  Lannister  |  King's Landing     |  House Lannister

First Name|Last Name|Location         |Allegiance
