Hi,

I am developing on windows xp and am trying to create RSS feed for an
app
using RoR. How do I test my RSS feed while I am developing it. I don't
know
of any feed reader that would accept localhost as the input.

Thanks

try using 127.0.0.1 instead of localhost

You can also put an entry into your hosts file to route a ficticious
domain name back to 127.0.0.1

or sign up with a free service such as dyndsn.  I prefer this method so
that I can access my site from anywhere without having to remember my
IP.

Thunderbird RSS feeds can be localhost just fine.

If you have python installed, you can run feed validator on the command
line:
