Fetching RSS feeds in background


#1

Hi all,

How would you implement an RSS feed fetcher that works in background
in an RoR application? It looks like backgroundrb is the way to go,
but it doesn’t work in Windoze…

The versions of backgroundrb before 0.2.0 do work in Windows, but
you’ll not get any support for it. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to
find an archive of the older version via google. Maybe you can dig it
up?

Hi,

Yeah… the fact that it is deprecated on Windows was a show stopper
for me.
I wanted something reliable. Seems like daemon_generator is the way to
go.
Any thoughts on that?
