Usage

Basic Usage

CSV with first line as header

import (
    "bytes"
    "fmt"
    "os"

    "github.com/recursionpharma/go-csv-map"
)

buf := bytes.NewBufferString("Album,Year\nDark Side of the Moon,1973\nExile On Main St,1972")
reader := csvmap.NewReader(buf)
reader.Columns, err := reader.ReadHeader()
if err != nil {
    fmt.Println(err)
    os.Exit(1)
}
records, err := reader.ReadAll()
if err != nil {
    fmt.Println(err)
    os.Exit(1)
}
fmt.Println(records[1]["Year"])
// Output: 1972

CSV with no header line

import (
    "bytes"
    "fmt"
    "os"

    "github.com/recursionpharma/go-csv-map"
)

buf := bytes.NewBufferString("Dark Side of the Moon,1973\nExile On Main St,1972")
reader := csvmap.NewReader(buf)
reader.Columns = []string{"Album", "Year"}
if err != nil {
    fmt.Println(err)
    os.Exit(1)
}
records, err := reader.ReadAll()
if err != nil {
    fmt.Println(err)
    os.Exit(1)
}
fmt.Println(records[1]["Year"])
// Output: 1972

Advanced Usage

csvmap.Reader.Reader gives you access to the underlying csv.Reader object.

Changing the separator

import (
    "bytes"
    "fmt"
    "os"

    "github.com/recursionpharma/go-csv-map"
)

buf := bytes.NewBufferString("Album;Year\nDark Side of the Moon;1973\nExile On Main St;1972")
reader := csvmap.NewReader(buf)
reader.Reader.Comma = ';'
reader.Columns, err := reader.ReadHeader()
if err != nil {
    fmt.Println(err)
    os.Exit(1)
}
records, err := reader.ReadAll()
if err != nil {
    fmt.Println(err)
    os.Exit(1)
}
fmt.Println(records[1]["Year"])
// Output: 1972

Checking for the number of fields

import (
    "bytes"
    "fmt"
    "os"

    "github.com/recursionpharma/go-csv-map"
)

buf := bytes.NewBufferString("Album;Year\nDark Side of the Moon;1973\nExile On Main St;1972")
reader := csvmap.NewReader(buf)
reader.Reader.FieldsPerRecord = 3 
reader.Columns, err := reader.ReadHeader()
fmt.Println(err != nil)
// Output: true
