Writing a CSV file to a local file path is only supported in the Nodejs environment
Node.js
const dfd = require("danfojs-node")
let data = {
Abs: [20.2, 30, 47.3],
Count: [34, 4, 5],
"country code": ["NG", "FR", "GH"],
};
let df = new dfd.DataFrame(data);
dfd.toCSV(df, { filePath: "testOut.csv"});

Convert DataFrame to CSV string and download file in Client-side lib

You can automatically convert and download a CSV file in a browser environment, by specifying a fileName and setting download to true.
const dfd = require("danfojs")
let data = {
Abs: [20.2, 30, 47.3],
Count: [34, 4, 5],
"country code": ["NG", "FR", "GH"],
};
let df = new dfd.DataFrame(data);
dfd.toCSV(df, { fileName: "testOut.csv", download: true});
