CSV Export

With refine, you can easily add export functionality to dump resources' records to a CSV file from anywhere, including buttons. By using the useExport hook with desired configurations, you can turn any button into an export button. Which resources' records to export can be configured. But by default, unless explicitly specified, it is inferred from current route of browser.


Let's see an example:

import {
} from "@pankod/refine";

export const PostList: React.FC = () => {
const { tableProps } = useTable<IPost>();

const { triggerExport, isLoading } = useExport<IPost>();

return (
extra: (
<ExportButton onClick={triggerExport} loading={isLoading} />
<Table {...tableProps} rowKey="id">
<Table.Column dataIndex="id" title="ID" />
<Table.Column dataIndex="title" title="Title" />

interface IPost {
id: string;
title: string;
Export button

After this setup is done, when the user clicks the button, download process will initialize.

Manually running the triggerExport function is another option.

useExport returns two properties: isLoading: boolean and triggerExport: async () => void. These properties can be used with Ant Design's <Button> components to create an export button. In this example, <ExportButton> is used and it's just an Ant Design <Button> with default icon and children, serving only presentational purposes.
