re: CSV Challenge VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

A oneliner if you're a linuxer 😉

curl -sSLo- https://gist.githubusercontent.com/jorinvo/7f19ce95a9a842956358/raw/e319340c2f6691f9cc8d8cc57ed532b5093e3619/data.json \
| jq -r '.[] | {name: .name, creditcard: .creditcard} | join(",")' \
> `date +%Y%m%d`.csv

However, there is something you have not mentioned in your post: Should the CSV file have the header line?

If yes, then use this:

echo 'name,creditcard' > `date +%Y%m%d`.csv && \
curl -sSLo- https://gist.githubusercontent.com/jorinvo/7f19ce95a9a842956358/raw/e319340c2f6691f9cc8d8cc57ed532b5093e3619/data.json \
| jq -r '.[] | {name: .name, creditcard: .creditcard} | join(",")' \
>> `date +%Y%m%d`.csv
 

This adds quotes.

"Dax Brekke II,1234-2121-1221-1211"
"Brando Stanton Jr.,1228-1221-1221-1431"
"Lacey McDermott PhD,"
"Elza Bauch,"

Maybe adding this sed command:

curl -sSLo- https://gist.githubusercontent.com/jorinvo/7f19ce95a9a842956358/raw/e319340c2f6691f9cc8d8cc57ed532b5093e3619/data.json \
| jq '.[] | {name: .name, creditcard: .creditcard} | join(",")' \
| sed -e 's/^"//' -e 's/"$//' -e 's/\\"/"/g' \
> "$(date +%Y%m%d).csv"
 

Doesn't the second solution need a >> in the last line, so the output is appended?

 

Yes, it does. (Didn't copy the correct version)

Thanks ☺
