Fetching RSS feeds in background

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,

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

I wanted something reliable. Seems like daemon_generator is the way to
Any thoughts on that?


Here is a copy of the previous version that runs under windows:
