Import and Export CSV Data With a YAML Metadata Header


CSVY is a file format that combines the simplicity of CSV (comma-separated values) with the metadata of other plain text and binary formats (JSON, XML, Stata, etc.). The CSVY file specification is simple: place a YAML header on top of a regular CSV. The csvy package implements this format using two functions: write_csvy and read_csvy.
