Hi, I’m new.
I creating a little rails app, that will crawl the web on a regular
basis and then show the results.
The crawling will be scheduled, likely a cron job.
I can’t wrap my head around where to put my crawler. It doesn’t seem
Model - News Story
Controllers - Grabs a story from the DB, Sort the Stories, Search the
View - HTML News Story, RSS Story etc.
Then a I have a news crawler, that will go crawl some feeds for new
stories, then insert them into the db. Where do I put it, and how do I
get cron to execute it?
Maybe put it in the NewsStoryController?
Do I make another file for cron to run, that contains something like
nc = NewsStoryController.new
If I do this will I still have access to the ActiveRecord the same as
I’m confused, and any guidance or feedback would be awesome!
