Data Resource - Type Attribute

Undraw Environment


type is a data resource attribute that defines at a high-level, the structure of the data resource.

We follow the media type convention.


With the print, head and tail data command, you can specify the type (ie media type with the --type option.

This is handy when you want to see the first lines of a document such as json or xml because by default, Tabulify treats one document as one line.


tabli data head --type text xml/relation.xml@howto


With the tabli data info command, we can see that a csv file has the type text/csv.

tabli data info characters.csv@howto
