I need to implement an activity feed for a Rails application with the following features: - Needs to work with MySQL database - Needs to support aggregations for similar feed stories (like Facebook) There is a library out there for Python, Feedly https://github.com/tschellenbach/Feedly, which seems to be an EXACT match for what I am trying to build, but well.. I need it in Ruby.

require 'simple-rss' require 'open-uri' @health_and_science = SimpleRSS.parse open("http://www.npr.org/rss/rss.php?id=1007") @health_and_science.entries.each do |f| printf("NPR Feed: %s %s\n", f.pubDate.to_date, f.title) end

Unfortunately you missed the point. I wasn't referring to RSS feeds. I mean activity feeds as in Facebook, Etsy, etc.

Hi guys, I'm one of the authors of Feedly (python). So it does sound exactly like what you're looking for but in the wrong language :) The same team behind Feedly is also offering a hosted solution now called getstream.io Have a look at the getting started, https://getstream.io/get_started/ We have client libraries available for Ruby, PHP, Python and Node. Internally its using a highly optimized system with Cassandra. It will be substantially cheaper than running your own Redis cluster. In addition it's currently in Beta, which means its free and comes with free tech support :) In case you are looking for building your own solution have a look at this article on highscalability: http://highscalability.com/blog/2013/10/28/design-...
