arrayToCSV

arraystringutilityintermediate

Converts a 2D array to a comma-separated values (CSV) string.

Use Array.prototype.map() and Array.prototype.join(delimiter) to combine individual 1D arrays (rows) into strings. Use Array.prototype.join('\n') to combine all rows into a CSV string, separating each row with a newline. Omit the second argument, delimiter, to use a default delimiter of ,.

const arrayToCSV = (arr, delimiter = ',') =>
  arr
    .map(v => v.map(x => (isNaN(x) ? `"${x.replace(/"/g, '""')}"` : x)).join(delimiter))
    .join('\n');
