Just another table to CSV converter that transforms and downloads tabular data in CSV/TXT/TSV format, based on jQuery and HTML5 download attribute.

How to use it:

1. Load the main JavaScript jquery.tabletocsv.js after jQuery but before we close the body tag.

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.3.1.slim.min.js" 
        integrity="sha384-q8i/X+965DzO0rT7abK41JStQIAqVgRVzpbzo5smXKp4YfRvH+8abtTE1Pi6jizo" 
        crossorigin="anonymous"></script>
<script src="jquery.tabletocsv.js"></script>

2. Your HTML table must have thead and tbody elements as follows:

<table class="table" id="example">
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <th>Month</th>
      <th>Savings</th>
    </tr>
  </thead>
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <td>January</td>
      <td>$100</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>February</td>
      <td>$80</td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
  <tfoot>
    <tr>
      <td>Sum</td>
      <td>$180</td>
    </tr>
  </tfoot>
</table>

3. Export the HTML table to a CSV file.

$('#example').tableToCsv();

4. Customize the file name.

$('#example').tableToCsv({
  fileName: t.attr('id')
);

5. Customize the file extension.

  extension: 'csv' // or 'txt', 'tsv'
);
