Code Generation using CSV Files


Updated: 03 September 2023

Generating code from a CSV file

At times it may be necessary to generate a script or some code from a CSV File, this can be done using Node.js with a structure as follows:

const buildCode = ({param1. param2, param3}) => `
  console.log(${param1}, ${param2 + param3})

const extractData = (line) => {
  const items = line.split(',')
  return {
    param1: items[0],
    param2: items[1],
    param3: items[2]

const fs = require('fs')

const code = fs
   .readFileSync('file.csv', 'utf8')

fs.writeFileSync('newFile.js', code)
