Agile RSS Aggregator in Ruby ==> rails

I just installed and ran this amazing program < blog/2007/03/22/agile-rss-aggregator-in-ruby/>. What would be involved in putting this together with rails? I'd like to persist the feeds to MySQL a la "feed on feeds".

Can I pretty much copy this code into a class in my existing rails project? How would it work? Maybe have a button "get feeds" which then grabs the feeds? I'd like to keep the code as simple as possible.

Looking for any pointers! :slight_smile:
