Convert

With convert command you can quickly convert a tabular data file from one format to another (or the same format with different dialect):

Format Conversion

For example, let's convert a CSV file into an Excel:

frictionless convert table.csv table.xlsx

Downloading Files

The command can be used for downloading files as well. For example, let's cherry-pick one CSV file from a Zenodo dataset:

frictionless convert https://zenodo.org/record/3977957 --name aaawrestlers --to-path test.csv

frictionless convert table.csv table-copy.csv --csv-delimiter ;
