Topic: Personal News Reader / RSS Feeds


I am new here.  Please bear with me as I'm still a novice learner smile  I am currently going thru ruby on rails tutorial.  As a next step, I would like to start working on a real project.  To keep it simple - I want to build a simple news reader (not sure it qualifies as an app).  I found few readers similar to what I was thinking...skimfeed fits the bill, simple and clean.

I would like to curate an RSS list which I would like to render on the page.  Any ideas or thoughts on how I should get started ? I was also wondering if there's anything similar to this on Github, but couldn't find any.  Any feedback will be much appreciated.
