CSVToArray

stringarrayutilityintermediate

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

Use Array.prototype.slice() and Array.prototype.indexOf('\n') to remove the first row (title row) if omitFirstRow is true. Use String.prototype.split('\n') to create a string for each row, then String.prototype.split(delimiter) to separate the values in each row. Omit the second argument, delimiter, to use a default delimiter of ,. Omit the third argument, omitFirstRow, to include the first row (title row) of the CSV string.

const CSVToArray = (data, delimiter = ',', omitFirstRow = false) =>
  data
    .slice(omitFirstRow ? data.indexOf('\n') + 1 : 0)
    .split('\n')
    .map(v => v.split(delimiter));
