Today we’ve released a new extension for WP Car Manager: The CSV Exporter Extension. The CSV Exporter exports all cars including features, makes, models and all car data to a CSV file.
There are multiple formats we could have chosen to generate an export in. The goal for most exports is to import your data somewhere else. So exporting your data to a format that is widely supported is key. Most systems support one or multiple standard format, CSV being one of them.
CSV stands for Comma Separated Values. Simply put, we put all your car data in a text file, 1 car per row and separate the car data with commas (,). The simplicity of the format is what makes it so popular and widely supported. The CSV file we generate can also be opened in applications like Microsoft Excel and Apple Numbers. These applications display the CSV data in a more structured way, allow you to easily edit the data.
Importing CSV Files
We’re currently working on creating a CSV Importer for WP Car Manager. The CSV Importer will use the same format as the CSV that is generated by the CSV Exporter. This way you can directly import CSV files into WP Car Manager that are generated by the CSV Exporter.
