CSV Integration into Viewer

#1 Post by Mr-Fly » 04.09.2020, 18:31

Hi,

It would be great if you could add a simple CSV Viewer into the viewer app.
Features would include:
- Different Seperators
- Quotation Support
- Sorting by columns.

I pretty ofter have CSV export, which I would like to just quickly view.
I am using CSVFileView often with this from nirsoft. Maybe some of the functionality can be built into FC?

Regards

Freecammander can use viewer plugins.

Have you tried?

You can find a lot of wlx plugins on https://totalcmd.net/
e.g. CSV View. https://totalcmd.net/plugring/csvview.html

to be honest.
The implementation of the viewer plugin is somewhat year 2000 or so.
All settings have to be changed in the .ini, or am I wrong?
eg. If headers are present.
This is something that can change from file to file and needs buttons or whatever.
Dont get me wrong. it is great for stuff you dont "work" on like pictures, .doc, ....
But CSV always means "working" like: Seperator is different, headers on/off, Sort by date, sort by alphabet, sort by number, .....

I have many sorts of CSV files and most of them are viewed fine with this plugin.
There other Total Commander viewers like ULister or XBaseView which also can display CSV files.

Thank you, but I wrote it already in my first message, that I am also using CSVFileView. Its the best approach for reading CSV at the moment.
But that why I asked for better internal support, as it would make sense.
