How to automatically Create a new page each day?

Hi,

I'm completely new to Ruby and RoR and yet I have an assignment due in less
than a week =( One part of the assignment states that my RoR app will have
to create a new page each day. I'm wondering what is the best way to get
this done? Should there be a continuous process running on the server to
detect the start of a new day to create a page for that day or should it be
more request-driven? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

I'd probably just have a cronjob that ran once a day.

What do you mean by ‘create a new page for each day’?

My idea is

  1. put one shell script file to create the page which will run every day at 12:01 am.
  2. name the file as today’s date.
  3. display the file named as todays date.

Simple!!!

Beware of bad SEO practices...
