Utilities for working with CSVs in Django

Project description

Contains helpers for CSV interaction.

There are two primary uses:

  • Running an import command with a list of importers
  • Exporting a streaming CSV response export

Example import:

from django_csv_utils import CSVImportException, ImportCommand, Importer
from users.models import User

class UserImporter(Importer):
    """Imports User objects from a CSV."""
    header = [

    def import_row(self, row):
        errors = []
        first_name = row.get("first_name", "")
        last_name = row.get("last_name", "")
        email = self.get_str_errblank(row, "email", errors).lower()
        if User.objects.filter(email=email).exists():
            errors.append("The email {} is already in use".format(email))
        if errors:
            raise CSVImportException(', '.join([str(e) for e in errors]))
        new_user = User.objects.create(
            email=email, first_name=first_name, last_name=last_name)
        return "Imported {0}".format(new_user.get_full_name())

class Command(ImportCommand):
    imports = {'users': UserImporter}

Example StreamingHTTPResponse:

from django_csv_utils import StreamingCSVView
from users.models import User

class UserCSVView(StreamingCSVView):
    """Give the list of users."""
    header = [

    def get_queryset(self):
        """Return the right list of users."""
        return User.objects.filter(is_active=True, is_superuser=False)

    def get_row(self, item):
        return (
