I want to offer a CSV download of data in my Rails app (eg. An “Export
to Excel” link to grab the current view of tabulated data).

non-HTML data. Even if I eliminate my layout template from my view, the
most basic view (no HTML) will still wrap the output in
Does anyone have a recommended way to do this within Rails?
