Urlgrabber in Ruby

Hello,

I’m looking for something like the Python-esque URLGrabber package, but
in
Ruby. Any tip?

  • urlgrabber is a pure python package that drastically simplifies the
    fetching
    of files. It is designed to be used in programs that need common (but
    not
    necessarily simple) url-fetching features. It is extremely simple to
    drop
    into an existing program and provides a clean interface to
    protocol-independant file-access. Best of all, urlgrabber takes care of
    all
    those pesky file-fetching details, and lets you focus on whatever it is
    that
    your program is written to do!

Thank you.

“open-uri” might serve your purposes. It allows you to work with
http/ftp resources as you would a normal file object:

open(“http://www.ruby-lang.org/”) {|f|
f.each_line {|line| p line}
}
