As part of a web development project, I am interested in Ruby on rails.
Currently my application is developped with Windev and uses a HFSQL (HyperFile Client/Server SQL) database.
I would like to know if it is possible to use this same database with Ruby on rails?
Thanks in advance
Welcome to the Rails community!
There does not seem to be an easy way to have a Rails app use a HFSQL database, however if you would be interested in exporting the data to CSV or some other format then it can become pretty straightforward to bring into a new Rails app.
I have created two gems which may prove useful – one that does pretty fancy import from CSV into Postgres or MySQL, and another, The Brick that allows you to navigate relational data and build out models and migrations. Along the way not much code is necessary to get up and going.
If you have some sample CSVs or an Excel file with one tab per table from your existing app then I can spend some time bringing it into being a Rails app if you like.
Let me know!
All the best,
