I was recently working on a project where I was doing web scraping and in retrieving the data, I realized it might be just as optimal to automate the input of data just as much as the retrieval of data
What it does
The user selects a .CSV (comma-separated values) file, which is like an MS Excel workbook, and it converts the table into equivalent HTML code that displays the table.
How I built it
This project is entirely made from reading/writing files in Java. The Java program selects a CSV file, reads each cell, and writes to an output HTML file in the proper HTML format.
Challenges I ran into
Reading/writing files and IO objects in Java was mildly hectic.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I know I'll never have to manually enter .CSV files into HTML ever again!
What I learned
I learned the most about reading and writing files in Java as well as how to use the applicable I/O objects and packages associated with this.
What's next for TableConverter
This can be optimized for non-uniform CSV files and tables, such as those with split columns, empty columns, or otherwise more complex data.
