File import/export: what is the best practice?

My app will have to import and export data in various formats. I am
wondering what is the recommended best practice to do this sort of
thing with Rails. Any documentation on the subject would be helpful.
I can handle the parsing and formatting of the files, but I don’t know
how to set up the file upload/download.

I’ve found that Google typically has the info I need when faced with ‘I
don’t know how to…’. The trick is to make ‘rails’ the first work in
the search. So, in this case for example, I did ‘rails file
upload/download’. The results seem to include what you’re looking for.

HTH,
