Getting Started

Let's integrate the UseCSV Importer plugin with your Angular app.

Make sure you configured your importer before starting.


Using NPM

npm install @usecsv/angular

Using YARN

yarn add @usecsv/angular

Add the Importer

Adding the usecsv-button component to your frontend will render a button that triggers the import modal when clicked.

Additional metadata can be passed in the user prop, and this will be passed back to your app in the JSON webhook when data is imported. It's a good idea to include a userId or similar identifying data, so you can correctly identfiy and import the data into your app. Check more details about Options.

  • importerKey: string Which can be found in the admin panel.

  • user: json object Contains details of the importing user, so that they can be identified easily.

Code example with default button

Check codesandbox example.

Import UsecsvAngularPluginModule in your Angular Module: app.module.ts

import { UsecsvAngularPluginModule } from '@usecsv/angular';

declarations: [AppComponent],
imports: [BrowserModule, UsecsvAngularPluginModule],
providers: [],
bootstrap: [AppComponent],

Use usecsv-button in your template: app.component.html

<usecsv-button importerKey="your-importer-key">Import Data</usecsv-button>
Usage Exmaple

Code example with custom button

Check codesandbox example.

Add customUsecsvButton selector to your custom button.

.custom-button {
width: 170px;
height: 70px;
color: #fff;
background-color: #027ad6;
box-shadow: 0 32px 64px rgba(0,0,0,0.07);

<usecsv-button importerKey="your-importer-key">
<button class="custom-button" customUsecsvButton>Import Data</button>
Usage example with custom button

Now your users can import data from within your app, the final step is to setup a webhook in your backend to receive imports. Let's goto the Webhook docs.
