Comma-separated values (CSV) is a simple and widely used format for storing tabular data. It is human-readable and easy to generate and parse.

Row delimiter

The row delimiter is the character used to separate each row in the CSV data. This is usually a new line character (LF), or a carriage return plus a new line character (CRLF).

We will automatically detect this and parse the rows correctly.

Value separator

The value separator is the character used to separate each value inside a row.

For CSV files, as the name implies it is usually a comma, but it can be different depending on the software used to generate the CSV file, we support the following separators:

  • Comma ,
  • Tab \t
  • Pipe |
  • Hash #
  • Semicolon ;

Character encoding

Depending on what software you used to generate the CSV file, it might have a different character encoding

If no character encoding is specified we will automatically try to guess it, so you don't have to worry about it if you're unsure.


Apache Avro is a row-oriented remote procedure call and data serialization framework developed within Apache's Hadoop project. It uses JSON for defining data types and protocols, and serializes data in a compact binary format.

Avro is designed to support complex nested data structures and enables efficient querying and manipulation of specific columns without reading the entire dataset.
