The MethodBox platform
MethodBox is a Ruby on Rails 2.3.x (tested up to rails 2.3.5 and ruby 1.8.7) application designed for the storage, finding and sharing of tabular and csv data. User can upload survey data, search for columns, download only the columns they require in various formats, make comments and add methods which can be applied to the data. It can also harvest DDI metadata from instances of a Nesstar data server.
