Wrong: use csv
Correct: use sqlite

This is the tl;dr of an upcoming blog post. If you have any questions about this choice please ask them so I can address them.


I realize that very often the csv is an export from Excel, done by people who wouldn't be able to create a SQLite database. But when it gets exported from some other software as a "reporting feature" or "export feature" there's no excuse.
