You must have an API token to call our APIs. You are automatically assigned one upon registering and confirming your email. See our tutorial: Two Methods of API Authentication and Example Use below that demonstrate passing your token to our server. You must substitute your token found in the Account page in place of [YOUR TOKEN]. Also, use your data file name instead of [YOUR FILE], i.e. invoices.csv. All conversion APIs require the infile parameter since it is the data you are converting.

Parameter Value Type Description Example Use
infile


string This is the input file: raw data, or URL. Choose one of the options of "Enter File", "URL", or "Data" curl -X POST "https://www.convertcsv.io/api/v1/csv2json/" -F "infile=@[YOUR FILE]" -H "Authorization: Token [YOUR TOKEN]"
string File encoding - if not passed, the converter will attempt to determine the encoding by looking at the first few thousand bytes of the file. Typical values are: utf-8, utf-16. You can see a list of all supported types here: https://docs.python.org/3/library/codecs.html curl -X POST "https://www.convertcsv.io/api/v1/yaml2csv?encoding=ascii" -F "infile=@[YOUR FILE]" -H "Authorization: Token [YOUR TOKEN]"
string Key value of target array in input data. By default the first repeating group is used (JSON array or XML repeating tag). See the "uselargest" option. If your JSON is not an array and you want to use the whole structure, then pass a dash - curl -X POST "https://www.convertcsv.io/api/v1/yaml2csv?key=id" -F "infile=@[YOUR FILE]" -H "Authorization: Token [YOUR TOKEN]"
integer Limit number of output records to N, i.e. 100. If you have a large output file, use this option to limit your output. curl -X POST "https://www.convertcsv.io/api/v1/yaml2csv?limit=10" -F "infile=@[YOUR FILE]" -H "Authorization: Token [YOUR TOKEN]"
boolean Do not output CSV headers. curl -X POST "https://www.convertcsv.io/api/v1/yaml2csv?noheading=1" -F "infile=@[YOUR FILE]" -H "Authorization: Token [YOUR TOKEN]"
string Output file delimiter, i.e. : See also: outtab, outpipe, outsemi Depending on our operating system and delimiter, you may have to quote the delimiter in the OS shell, or URL encode the delimiter if used in a query string. curl -X POST "https://www.convertcsv.io/api/v1/yaml2csv" -F "infile=@[YOUR FILE]" -F outdelimiter=":" -H "Authorization: Token [YOUR TOKEN]"
boolean Output delimiter is |. This is a convenience method sense | has special meaning in some command line shells. In the API query string, it is easier to use than encoding the query string. See also: outdelimiter, outtab, outsemi curl -X POST "https://www.convertcsv.io/api/v1/yaml2csv?outpipe=1" -F "infile=@[YOUR FILE]" -H "Authorization: Token [YOUR TOKEN]"
boolean Output delimiter is semi-colon. This is a convenience method sense semi-colon has special meaning in some command line shells. In the API query string, it is easier to use than encoding the query string. See also: outdelimiter, outtab, outpipe curl -X POST "https://www.convertcsv.io/api/v1/yaml2csv?outsemi=1" -F "infile=@[YOUR FILE]" -H "Authorization: Token [YOUR TOKEN]"
boolean Output delimiter is Tab. This is a convenience method sense Tab is difficult to specify. See also: outdelimiter, outsemi, outpipe curl -X POST "https://www.convertcsv.io/api/v1/yaml2csv?outtab=1" -F "infile=@[YOUR FILE]" -H "Authorization: Token [YOUR TOKEN]"
string Output quoting in CSV output, N=None, M=Minimal, A=ALL. A will wrap all fields in double quotes. M will only wrap if necessary. N will not wrap with double quotes but will backslash special characters. curl -X POST "https://www.convertcsv.io/api/v1/yaml2csv?quotingstyle=A" -F "infile=@[YOUR FILE]" -H "Authorization: Token [YOUR TOKEN]"
boolean Supress line break in data curl -X POST "https://www.convertcsv.io/api/v1/yaml2csv?suppress=1" -F "infile=@[YOUR FILE]" -H "Authorization: Token [YOUR TOKEN]"
boolean Choose largest array to convert. You typically will want to use "key" instead. curl -X POST "https://www.convertcsv.io/api/v1/yaml2csv?uselargest=1" -F "infile=@[YOUR FILE]" -H "Authorization: Token [YOUR TOKEN]"
boolean Generate Excel curl -X POST "https://www.convertcsv.io/api/v1/yaml2csv?xlsx=1" -F "infile=@[YOUR FILE]" -H "Authorization: Token [YOUR TOKEN]"
