I am researching a new rails app that would like to create. One
feature of the app will allow users to select a ruby script and run it
on their local machine. However I'm not sure how to implement this.
There are a few points that I'm not sure how to approach:
1. How to store the script to be executed on the users PC. As text in
the DB or as a file in the DB (Can a file be stored in a DB) Or as a
file in the apps file structure.
2. How to get the script to the users PC and start it running. (The
users PC will have Ruby installed).
3. How to report back the result of running the script.
