Rss maker make issue - Please help


#1

I am a RoR newbie.
I have a problem with getting the rss content when using rss:maker.make
(using rails 2.2.2 and Ruby 1.8). I am trying to get the full XML
definition to be written to a file. When I try it locally it works fine
and I get the data in the content object. However, when I try this on a
hosted environment content does not contain any data. Also when I output
the object using object.inspect, the content object look different.

Code:
content = RSS::Maker.make(‘2.0’) do |m|
m.channel.title = @mychannel.title
m.channel.link = @mychannel.link
m.channel.description = @mychannel.description
m.items.do_sort = true # sort items by date
for myfeed in @myfeeds
puts “new items found”
i = m.items.new_item
i.title = myfeed.title
i.description = myfeed.description
i.link = “”
i.date = Time.parse(myfeed.created_at.to_s)
end
end
puts content.inspect
File.open(destination,“w”) do |f|
f.write(content.to_xml)
end
object inspection
