JSON to CSV Converter

JSON to CSV Converter

JSON to CSV converter is a tool that transforms data from JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) format to CSV (Comma Separated Values) format. Both JSON and CSV are popular formats for storing and exchanging data, but they serve different purposes and have distinct structures. The conversion from JSON to CSV happens by flattening the JSON structure into a tabular form. This can be straightforward for simple JSON data but may require additional logic for nested structures or arrays.

JSON: This format is useful for storing structured data. It is easy for humans to read and write and easy for machines to parse and generate. JSON data is organized in a hierarchical format with key-value pairs, and it can represent complex data structures including nested objects and arrays.

  • JSON Example:

    "name": "John Doe",
    "age": 30,
    "cars": ["Ford", "BMW", "Fiat"]

CSV: This format is used primarily for tabular data. Each line in a CSV file corresponds to a data record, and each record consists of one or more fields separated by commas. CSV is a simpler format compared to JSON and is often used for spreadsheets and databases.

  • CSV Example:

    name, age, car1, car2, car3
    John Doe, 30, Ford, BMW, Fiat
