This is the source code for which is a small sinatra app that provides a rss feed for what's popular on Github. Feeds are automatically cached in production mode. There is no expire, but there is a rake task (rake cache:flush) that you can run with cron every 3 hours to flush the cache.

Please Note: if you use rvm I've included a .rvmrc file for myself, but feel free to edit or remove it if you want.


If you want to contribute (that wold be awesome), fork the project and then send me a pull request. Please add tests for it.
