Craigslist Helper

I built this thing in a few hours to help me and my buddies search for a place to live. There are two components:

Rake Task

Fetches RSS feeds and updates the listings table with new listings. Duplication checking is only done on the URL of the listing.


Displays all listing inline, giving you one easy view for images, a google map, an email button with sane subject and body defaults, and a few other things.

ENV["ADMIN_USERNAME"] and ENV["ADMIN_PASSWORD"] control authentication.

There's also an 'archive' method, which lets you archive a listing if you don't like it or you've contacted the listing owner.


  • Fancy duplicate checking
  • Comments and +1s
