What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

There is one I know at http://www.sensefulsolutions.com/2010/10/format-text-as-table.html that takes a TAB delimited input and formats as Ascii Table.

But do you know other such online tools, that take more input types like CSV.

While this question is asked in the context of Stack Overflow, it's really just asking for a list of utilities. –  Tim Post Mar 13 '11 at 14:15

@Tim awww. It's still fairly relevant to SO. Voting to reopen –  Pëkka Mar 13 '11 at 14:23
    
I agree with Tim. How about migrating to Web Apps? –  Pops Mar 14 '11 at 14:26

Obtain your CSV data, I will use this as an example:

"id","category","name","icon","field 4","field 5","field 6","field 7","field 8","field 9","description"
"1","1","Currency Token Test Token 4","INV_Misc_Coin_09","0","1","0","0","0","2","Text that describes this item can be found here."
"2","1","Currency Token Test Token 2","ability_cheapshot","0","1","2","0","0","1",""
"4","1","Currency Token Test Token 5","INV_Misc_Coin_07","0","4","3","0","0","1",""
"22","41","Birmingham Test Item 3","INV-Sword_53","0","0","0","0","0","0",""
"42","1","Badge of Justice","Spell_Holy_ChampionsBond","0","0","0","0","0","0",""
"61","1","Dalaran Jewelcrafter's Token","INV_Misc_Gem_Variety_01","0","0","0","0","0","0",""
"81","1","Dalaran Cooking Award","INV_Misc_Ribbon_01","0","0","0","0","0","0",""
"101","22","Emblem of Heroism","Spell_Holy_ProclaimChampion","0","0","0","0","0","0",""
"102","22","Emblem of Valor","Spell_Holy_ProclaimChampion_02","0","0","0","0","0","0",""
"103","2","Arena Points","Spell_Holy_ChampionsBond","0","0","0","0","0","0",""

  1. Paste it in Wordpad.
  2. Search for ", replace with empty string.
  3. Search for ,, replace with <tab>.
  4. Paste it in the tool you linked
  5. ╔═════╦══════════╦══════════════════════════════╦════════════════════════════════╦═════════╦═════════╦═════════╦═════════╦═════════╦═════════╦══════════════════════════════════════════════════╗

I do not consider this useful, as it involves too much steps. And what if you don't have access to such tool. I post many answers from a mobile device. –  Pentium10 Mar 13 '11 at 14:08
    
very cool but not the web app the OP asked for.. –  Jeff Atwood Mar 15 '11 at 10:31
    
Cut and paste the CSV in the following online tool ascii.gallery/table and it will generate the ascii table. –  user424242 Dec 10 at 17:44
