Export table in rails console

This is just a small twist on the very nice snippet I found from this post.  I just changed it slightly, so you can get all the attributes automatically so you can easily swap out any model.  And it will also list the column names in the first row.

require 'csv'
 
file = "#{Rails.root}/public/data.csv"
 
table = User.all;0
 
CSV.open( file, 'w' ) do |writer|
  writer << table.first.attributes.map { |a,v| a }
  table.each do |s|
    writer << s.attributes.map { |a,v| v }
  end
end
