Add option to simpy download the data without "visual" output
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Sometimes when using Massviews I would simply need to download the data, I don't care about the pretty table (or graph) that's being showed up. And sometimes (in case of large amount of data) it crashes the browser.

OK, show me the errors, but don't show me the table.

Thoughts?

A fine idea! This would involve building a backend service, something I'm very interested in doing. As a download-only service, we can probably also dramatically increase the cap on the number of pages that can be processed, which I believe is currently set to 20,000. Hopefully I can devise a way to do this while still providing the user with a progress bar, and reporting the errors as they happen, etc. I shall look into it! Thanks
