Need a feed aggregator

want to aggregate interesting blogs / discussions related to software
testing field and keep it at one place

  1. In the admin system I’ll provide some information about the feed
    this i will do

    • Name for the feed
    • Address of the fee (XML file address on the internet)
  2. Based on this information - there should be some periodic job which
    will run at a specific time, fetch latest article etc from their feed
    and populate in our DB (need help in this )

  3. Look at couple of feeds - they should all have similar fields and
    we need to extract all the relevant data from them.

  4. This aggregator should support all the popular feed format like -
    RSS / ATOM etc

check out feedzirra. ryan bates of railscasts.com, has a great
screencast on using this tool…

i’ve written a blog post about installing it on ubuntu bc there are a
couple of dependencies which fight back…

i developed a very simple reader application you can see it here
http://seanbehan.com/reader using feedzirra and a cron job. if you’re
interested i can throw the source up on github.
