CSV Tools for Django REST Framework

Author: Mjumbe Wawatu Poe, Follow me on Twitter <http://www.twitter.com/mjumbewu>_.

Installation

.. code-block:: bash

$ pip install djangorestframework-csv

Usage

views.py

.. code-block:: python

from rest_framework.views import APIView
from rest_framework.settings import api_settings
from rest_framework_csv import renderers as r

class MyView (APIView):
    renderer_classes = (r.CSVRenderer, ) + tuple(api_settings.DEFAULT_RENDERER_CLASSES)
    ...

Alternatively, to set CSV as a default rendered format, add the following to the settings.py file:

.. code-block:: python

REST_FRAMEWORK = {
    # specifying the renderers
    'DEFAULT_RENDERER_CLASSES': (
        'rest_framework_csv.renderers.CSVRenderer',
    ),
}

Ordered Fields

By default, a CSVRenderer will output fields in sorted order. To specify an alternative field ordering you can override the header attribute. There are two ways to do this:

1) Create a new renderer class and override the header attribute directly:

.. code-block:: python

    class MyUserRenderer (CSVRenderer):
        header = ['first', 'last', 'email']

    @api_view(['GET'])
    @renderer_classes((MyUserRenderer,))
    def my_view(request):
        users = User.objects.filter(active=True)
        content = [{'first': user.first_name,
                    'last': user.last_name,
                    'email': user.email}
                   for user in users]
        return Response(content)

2) Use the renderer_context to override the field ordering on the fly:

.. code-block:: python

    class MyView (APIView):
        renderer_classes = [CSVRenderer]

        def get_renderer_context(self):
            context = super().get_renderer_context()
            context['header'] = (
                self.request.GET['fields'].split(',')
                if 'fields' in self.request.GET else None)
            return context

        ...

Labeled Fields

Custom labels can be applied to the CSVRenderer using the labels dict attribute where each key corresponds to the header and the value corresponds to the custom label for that header.

1) Create a new renderer class and override the header and labels attribute directly:

.. code-block:: python

    class MyBazRenderer (CSVRenderer):
        header = ['foo.bar']
        labels = {
            'foo.bar': 'baz'
        }

Pagination

Using the renderer with paginated data is also possible with the new PaginatedCSVRenderer class and should be used with views that paginate data

For more information about using renderers with Django REST Framework, see the API Guide <http://django-rest-framework.org/api-guide/renderers/> or the Tutorial <http://django-rest-framework.org/tutorial/1-serialization/>.

Running the tests

To run the tests against the current environment:

.. code-block:: bash

$ ./manage.py test

Changelog

2.1.1

  • Add support for byte order markers (BOM) (thanks @Yaoxin)

  • Generators can be used as data sources for CSVStreamingRenderer (thanks @jrzerr)
  • Support for non UTF-8 encoding parsing (thanks @weasellin)

2.0.0

  • Make CSVRenderer.render return bytes, and CSVParser.parse expect a byte stream.
  • Have data-less renders print header row, if header is explicitly supplied
  • Drop Django 1.7 tests and add Django 1.10 tests
