Convert your CSV files into Markdown tables.

Project Description

csvtomd: markdown tables made easy

Version 0.1.0

Convert your CSV files into Markdown tables.

Tables Generator is a fantastic web tool for converting tabular data into all sorts of table layouts. I like how it lets me import CSV files, but I need the ability to convert many CSV files in batch for a docset on which I’m working.

I built csvtomd to convert one or more CSV files into nicely-padded Markdown tables. Now you can build your tables in Excel and convert them for use in GitHub, Bitbucket, or Mou Markdown files without having to construct them by hand.

Usage

Markdown Table

First Name Last Name Location Allegiance
