Wow! Never knew about pluto. It looks good. Now I am experimenting with feedjira to see where it takes me. I will try pluto next. If possible contributing to it.

Currently my code has lot of bugs which pluto seems to have solved. Thanks a lot.

Hello,
    Thanks for kind words.

Now I am experimenting with feedjira to see where it takes me.

   The feedjira gem equivalent in the pluto family would be the
feedparser gem [1] - with the design difference that feedparser only
parses and normalizes feeds BUT does not fetch feeds (thus, letting
you use your HTTP library of choice).

I will try pluto next. If possible contributing to it.

    The major addition of pluto to feedjira / feedparser is the SQL
schema / database (single-file SQLite by default) - the idea of pluto
is to keep it modular so you can (re)use just some parts (gems) such
as the pluto-models gem just for the SQL schema and ActiveRecord
models.

    The newscast gem is the all-in-one do-it-yourself (DIY) starter
kit / library with many convenience "helper" function and easy setup
(with auto-migrate and connect etc.).

    Happy feed processing with ruby. All the best. Cheers. Prost.

People,

Thanks for all this info! - I will check it all out! Some time ago I got so frustrated with YouTube that I set up newsbeuter to more systematically manage my watching (and of course, reading, for other sites). newsbeuter did most of what I wanted - including being able to start a new video in a Chrome window from a selected post and having a plain urls.txt file that I could manage happily with vim (including with adding key words to the end of each line for sorting eg "politics", "ruby" etc - but newsbeuter seems to be now unmaintained so I had been thinking about a Ruby solution! - good timing!

Phil.
