3 weeks ago

Hello, Is there any option to export collection list to external file?

    Built this yesterday:

    import { stringify } from 'csv-stringify/sync'
    import archiver from 'archiver'
    export const downloadEndpoint: Endpoint = {
      path: '/download-zip',
      method: 'get',
      async handler(req, res, next) {
        // Only admins allowed
        if (!isAdmin(req.user)) return next()
        const result = await req.payload.find({
          collection: 'widgets',
          where, // derived from query params
          limit: 1000, // sanity check
        const archive = archiver('zip', { zlib: { level: 9 } })
        res.setHeader('Content-Type', 'application/zip')
        res.setHeader('Content-Disposition', 'attachment;')
        const csv = stringify(, { header: true })
        archive.append(csv, { name: 'test.csv' })

    Thanks for answer! đź’š ,

    Do you have some extra configuration for archiver? When I'm trying use it, I have a lot of errors

    If it's a webpack error, you should add archiver to payloadconfig.admin.webpack.resolve.alias so ot doesn't try to bundle it. Otherwise not other config

    You could consider to skip the zipping and return the csv straight away
