Export Text to CSV


Is it possible to export the text from all posts in a topic or category? We’d like to be able to analyze offline.


There are several ways to export content from Discourse, and any text can be converted to CSV or whichever tool you prefer. Search the forums for exporting, loads of info available.

You can export to CSV with the data explorer plugin. It’s available on CDCK hosting on their business plan. If you’re self-hosted you can install it.

I wrote a little Ruby program that will download all the posts from a topic. I’ve apparently not looked at it in 4 years.

Is a CSV really what you want? What tool are you doing to analyze the data with?
