How to upload and download files (type of files pdfs,xls,word)

Hi,
I need to upload files in my rails application.the type of the files
should be pdf,xls,word.After that i need to download them from the view
page.plz help me in this regard.
Thankyou

paperclip is a great way to upload the files. downloading the files
shouldn’t be too difficult although the details can be specific to where
you have your site deployed and how the file system is managed by the
upload choices.

on one site i have some static files that the users need to download.
these are not uploaded content so i can just put them in /public/docs
and
create a link to them on the page. the browser just knows to download
them
when a user clicks on the links.

from the sounds of it you’ll probably want to create a model entry for
each
file that is uploaded, upload them to AWS or something like that and
make
those links point to the AWS instance of the file. I imagine that would
work.

good luck,

Max
