I have a requirement of a Contacts Importer. I need to Invite friends by
importing Contacts from Gmail Hotmail etc...

Is there Ruby on Rails based code to import contacts from gmail,
yahoo, hotmail, etc.? I've seen this on many sites and have found php-
based code but nothing yet for Ruby.

Or can we use php code with rails application, If so how to use?

I'd like to know this too.
I think we could use OpenInviter but not that sure how.
