Which library for reading RSS?


#1

Hi all,

I’m looking for a library for reading RSS feeds. Do you know a good one
?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Thomas ~

There is a code snippet that might be helpful here:

REXML is the tool to use,

with XML.

I have used simpleRSS for reading and storing news stories… Worked like
a
charm.

I second SimpleRSS. There is also the standard Ruby RSS library, but
SimpleRSS doesn’t blow up as easily as the standard library when parsing
bad XML.
