Looking for web crawler written in Ruby

Hi, I am looking for web crawler(spider) written in Ruby. I googled but
couldn’t find much information. Can anyone give me some links?

Thanks in advance.

If you are really desperate, the first Ruby program I ever wrote was
kind of a web crawler:
http://students.seattleu.edu/collinsj/programs_netcrawler.html

But it’s really terrible. It isn’t hard to write your own, if you need
to, using Net::HTTP
(http://ruby-doc.org/stdlib/libdoc/net/http/rdoc/index.html) and URI
(http://ruby-doc.org/stdlib/libdoc/uri/rdoc/index.html).

The code I translated from Higher-Order Perl at the tail end of the
following blog article may be of use to you.

Many thanks, I appreciate it very much.

Some more offerings here:

now you’re practically crawling with spiders :slight_smile:

There’s not much spidering going on there, just some page scraping

look at Mechanize

My Mechanize example may be helpful, though.
