— Well, there's an opinion that "true" gamedev should use Unity as a last resort, but best stick with C++, even for servers. Garbage collection and such are mostly the arguments against VM based languages. But anyway - it is fun to do it with JS and besides small realtime apps can be used outside of "pure" gamedev.

— I decided to only use quotation mark delimited CSV format, even though there are lots without them

var rowString = "[" + csvRow + "]";
var rowArray = JSON.parse(rowString);

— Also, excel parses equations if they start with = in csvs

— In the parse table, there will not be letters in the column head, only numbers
