Archive old pages to a static page

John van Arkelen asked in Rails

Maybe a weird question, but I have a report dashboard application, where a specific report contains a lot of records in the database. In general users only check the last 3 reports frequently, so I was wondering if there is an option to convert older reports to a static web page. This way these old reports can be served as static web pages and I don't need to store all those records in the database anymore. Any suggestions how to do this are welcome!



You could try using render_to_string & save the rendered view in your database, then when you need to show this report you can render :html that.

Just an idea, not tested :)
