CSV Tools for Django REST Framework

CSV Tools for Django REST Framework

Author: Mjumbe Wawatu Poe, Follow me on Twitter.

Installation

$ pip install djangorestframework-csv

Usage

views.py

from rest_framework.views import APIView
from rest_framework.settings import api_settings
from rest_framework_csv import renderers as r

class MyView (APIView):
    renderer_classes = (r.CSVRenderer, ) + api_settings.DEFAULT_RENDERER_CLASSES
    ...

Alternatively, to set CSV as a default rendered format, add the following to the settings.py file:

REST_FRAMEWORK = {
    # specifying the renderers
    'DEFAULT_RENDERER_CLASSES': (
        'rest_framework_csv.renderers.CSVRenderer',
    ),
}

Ordered Fields

By default, a CSVRenderer will output fields in sorted order. To specify an alternative field ordering you can override the header attribute. There are two ways to do this:

  1. Create a new renderer class and override the header attribute directly:

    class MyUserRenderer (CSVRenderer):
        header = ['first', 'last', 'email']
    
    @api_view(['GET'])
    @renderer_classes((MyUserRenderer,))
    def my_view(request):
        users = User.objects.filter(active=True)
        content = [{'first': user.first_name,
                    'last': user.last_name,
                    'email': user.email}
                   for user in users]
        return Response(content)
    
  2. Use the renderer_context to override the field ordering on the fly:

    class MyView (APIView):
        renderer_classes = [CSVRenderer]
    
        def get_renderer_context(self):
            context = super().get_renderer_context()
            context['header'] = (
                self.request.GET['fields'].split(',')
                if 'fields' in self.request.GET else None)
            return context
    
        ...
    

Labeled Fields

Custom labels can be applied to the CSVRenderer using the labels dict attribute where each key corresponds to the header and the value corresponds to the custom label for that header.

1) Create a new renderer class and override the header and labels attribute directly:

class MyBazRenderer (CSVRenderer):
    header = ['foo.bar']
    labels = {
        'foo.bar': 'baz'
    }

Running the tests

To run the tests against the current environment:

$ ./manage.py test

Changelog

2.0.0

  • Make CSVRenderer.render return bytes, and CSVParser.parse expect a byte stream.
  • Have data-less renders print header row, if header is explicitly supplied
  • Drop Django 1.7 tests and add Django 1.10 tests
