I am building out an app that will allow the user to import a data set
(as a CSV) from another application and view reports that will allow
them to make educated decisions. The most common task users will be
doing is importing CSV files.
An average CSV file will contain 1000 to 2500 rows and the system
will need to import approx. 50 CSV files per hour in the beginning and
could easily grow to 5000+ CSV files per hour as I intend on making
the basic plan w/ 60% of features available for free.
The CSV files will all be standardized. I don’t need to worry about
column variations or dirty data for version 1.0.
I am wondering is if FasterCSV is the right tool to use in this
In addition, there will be lots of data crunching for preparing the
reports. Is ROR even the right solution for this problem? I think it
is but what do you think?
