Universal Feed Parser
http://rfeedparser.rubyforge.org Original Python code Copyright (c) 2002-5 by Mark Pilgrim Ruby port by Jeff Hodges.
Parse nearly any RSS and Atom feeds in Ruby. 3000 unit tests. Open source.
For Debian-based systems:
$ sudo apt-get install libxml-ruby1.8 # or libxml-parser-ruby1.8
TODO: dependency installation instructions for other platforms.
$ sudo gem install rfeedparser
Or for the latest development version:
$ git clone git://github.com/technomancy/rfeedparser.git
Dependencies on other gems are handled by rubygems, but rfeedparser also relies on having bindings to a native XML parsing library. The recommended choice is libxml, which is installable with the libxml-ruby1.8 package in Debian-based systems. But it can also fall back to expat (the libxml-parser-ruby1.8 Debian package) if libxml is not installed.
require 'rubygems' # may omit if installed manually require 'rfeedparser' feed = FeedParser.parse("some-feed-stream-filepath-or-url") feed.entries.each do |e| puts e.title puts e.content puts e.published puts '----' end
