CSV.jl: Write csv row by row

I have an application which writes a csv as an output but never holds the complete csv in memory.
I would like to use a library such as CSV.jl to
a) take advantage of optimizations (CSV.jl is super fast for reading!)
b) use things like escaping logic

However CSV.jl implements a row by row reading method with CSV.rows but only CSV.write to write a complete file as far as I can see.
Is there any way to do this?

There is an append kw arg that you can use to add to an existing file.

See https://juliadata.github.io/CSV.jl/stable/#CSV.write

Is this what you are looking for?

This PR has been merged into the latest CSV.jl version 0.6.2, but I have not tried it yet.

The RowWriter does not seem quite what I need. Given a struct implementing the Tables.jl interface it returns an iterator of the strings which would be written to the file.
The append flag is more in the direction of what I need, although I don’t expect it to be very efficient.

I’ll try the append flag and maybe using a Channel-Tables Interface to insert a row as soon as it is there and write if I find anything good.
