Django utf-8 csv export
Using the same example on Python 2.7 docs
import csv, codecs, cStringIO
class UnicodeWriter:
A CSV writer which will write rows to CSV file "f",
which is encoded in the given encoding.
def __init__(self, f, dialect=csv.excel, encoding="utf-8", **kwds):
# Redirect output to a queue
self.queue = cStringIO.StringIO()
self.writer = csv.writer(self.queue, dialect=dialect, **kwds) = f
self.encoder = codecs.getincrementalencoder(encoding)()
def writerow(self, row):
self.writer.writerow([s.encode("utf-8") for s in row])
# Fetch UTF-8 output from the queue ...
data = self.queue.getvalue()
data = data.decode("utf-8")
# ... and reencode it into the target encoding
data = self.encoder.encode(data)
# write to the target stream
# empty queue
def writerows(self, rows):
for row in rows:
from django.shortcuts import HttpResponse
from .django-csv-export-utf8 import UnicodeWriter
def csvexport(request):
response = HttpResponse(content_type='text/csv')
name = 'foo.csv'
response['Content-Disposition'] = 'attachment; filename='+name
Here we combine Django example:
with UnicodeWriter class
writer = UnicodeWriter(response)
writer.writerow(["Bar", "1", "2"])
return response
