SDK and plugins

@flatfile/plugin-delimiter-extractor@0.9.1 and @flatfile/plugin-xlsx-extractor@v1.11.3

A new update brings our extractors in line with Flatfile’s core header detection capabilities, and now offers three distinct header detection strategies: default, explicitHeaders, and specificRows. The default strategy automatically scans the first 10 rows of your file to identify the header row based on the highest count of non-empty cells.
