You can use Banno-csv to convert a CSV string to a case class.

  1. Create your case class that will represent a CSV row
  2. Add an implicit Formats in your case class' companion object.
  3. Then use the CSVParser object's .parseCSVTo function to convert it.
case class Person(first: String, last: String, age: Int)
object Person {
  implicit val personFormat = CSVProductFormats.productFormat3("First Name", "Last Name", "Age")(Person.apply)(Person.unapply)

CSVParser.parseCSVTo[Person]("csv as string")

//Success(Seq(Person("Frank", "Bob", "45"), ...))
