Thaana news headlines crawler running on Ruby on Rails.
Originally deployed in mvheadlines.com

Setup

Install dependencies:
sudo gem install hpricot htmlentities

Migrate the database:
rake db:migrate:reset

Call Site class methods to start crawling:
script/runner -e development "Site.update_all"

Start the server. If you have newer Rails, force start with Webrick:
./script/server webrick

Try it out in your browser:
http://localhost:3000

Important Notes

  • Default Site data populated during migration.
  • Rails 2.1 is frozen in.
