Parse XLS/CSV Files In Vue.js

Parse XLS/CSV Files In Vue.js

A simple VueJS component to parse XLS/CSV files with validation.

Vue XLS/CSV parser


This npm package will help you parse XLS/CSV files and validate them. The user will be asked to associate his file columns with the columns you require. Once validated, an event will be triggered where you will be able to get only the data you need.



You will need Bootstrap 3.x. It has not been tested yet with Boostrap 4.




Name Type Description
columns (required) Array An array of object representing the columns you required: [{ name: 'Student login', value: 'login', isOptional: false }]
validateButtonId String The id of the custom validate button. The component validation button will not be displayed
help String Help text shown on the file dropzone
lang String en, nl or fr. Default: en


  • onValidate(results): all the data parsed by the component and returned after the user validation

Example usage

  <div class="app">
    <h3>Example - Import file with required login, firstname, lastname and optional values</h3>
    <xls-csv-parser :columns="columns" @on-validate="onValidate" :help="help" lang="en"></xls-csv-parser>
    <div class="results" v-if="results">
      <pre>{{ JSON.stringify(results, null, 2) }}</pre>

  import { XlsCsvParser } from 'vue-xls-csv-parser';
  export default {
    name: 'App',
    components: {
    methods: {
      onValidate(results) {
        this.results = results;
    data() {
      return {
        columns: [
          { name: 'Student login', value: 'login' },
          { name: 'Student firstname', value: 'firstname' },
          { name: 'Student lastname', value: 'lastname' },
          { name: 'Other', value: 'other', isOptional: true },
