I may not fully understand the question, but are you asking someone to
supply the whole application for you?  If not then a more focussed
question indicating the particular detail that you need help with
would be better.

I presume you have already worked through some tutorials such as the
rails guides and used google to try and answer the questions yourself.

That will probably be the hardest part, after parsing it, it should be
a pretty standard thing to take the data and put it in a DB, any
decent Rails tutorial can teach you that.
