In my opinion for complex cases it's (arguably) simpler to write the loader yourself. There is only so much you can expect from an UI interface such a format which can return such hugely varying data topology.

Learning Python is next on my list. I first learned HAPI, and wrote my pipeline using that. Hearing about TOPs, it seemed to be a better long term solution, so I am switching over to that. While I will eventually need to write some custom integration using Python, there are some general issues with the JSON/CSV nodes that kept popping up for different use cases, so having those ironed out while TOPs is still in early development would be very nice. Also, for standalone PDG, I expect users will start to pipe in a lot of different kinds of data, so having a basic set of flexible data retrieval nodes would likely become even more important.

Again, another issue with CSV output. Handle multiple values Add Columns with a 2D position attribute gives:

position position1 position1 position1 and so on

The JSON/CSV related nodes are, honestly speaking, totally utterly broken. They have been for weeks. And it have kept me frustrated with TOPs for weeks. And it has prevented any kind of progress in my project for… WEEKS. Please, please, do something about these nodes. I can't believe how they can have been shipped with so many bugs! Did anyone ever use these for anything even resembling a real project???

Btw, talking about the csv input node, it does not support unicode. That is a big issue if you are not living in the US. And csv output splits a string attribute containing commas into several columns, but only when specifying tab as delimiter.
