Since it’s typed, human readable, and supported darn near everywhere, JSON is the new hotness for data transport formats. Unfortunately, many systems don’t expose a JSON API. Relational data is often represented in the tried and true CSV format.

Paul Engel has introduced CSONV.js, a JavaScript library that can consume remote CSV data and transform it to JSON, a more client-side developer friendly format.
