Download CSV from MM Module



  • Hello all.

    This is quite a basic question and it’s probably answered somewhere in the forum, but I couldn’t find it…

    I’m writing a module to show I do from my local bus service, who publish the info in CSV format.

    I managed to parse the file and show it in the mirror once I manually downloaded the CSV file and put it in a local folder, but I don’t know how to actually download it.

    Could anyone point me to a forum post related to this topic or some other MM module that actually downloads a file?

    Thank you



  • @Londoneye02 there is no general post on this… its a development topic…

                  {
                    url: ??????
                    encoding: null,
                    method: 'GET'
                  }, (error, response, body) => {
                  }
            )
