Reading RSS feeds

Any gems or guides out there for reading RSS (and maybe ATOM) feeds
into rails for display on a RoR site and/or storing in a database?
I’ve only found a few for creating feeds with my content, but I want
to show other’s feeds on my site and I got big trouble searching for
this.

Thanks in advance,
Mathias.

Try http://rubyforge.org/projects/feedtools/

simple-rss isn’t as easy to use, but is more permissive. I’ve far less
RSS feeds rejected by simple-rss than feedtools.

Thanks to both of you! I will look into these, they look quite
promising. Can’t believe I didn’t find the feedtools, just not my day
when it comes to searches I guess. Thanks! :smiley:

Mathias,

Try
http://rubyforge.org/projects/feedtools/
http://simple-rss.rubyforge.org/

You should also consider hpricot:

It’s a more general parser, but it should do the job. I’ve used it in
an feed aggregator, and it worked fine.
