    How can I create this Ruby on Rails website

    http://design-feed.net/index.html

    I was looking over the code and I'm lost. I know its powered by Ruby, how do I go about creating such a site. I noticed about 5 other websites using the same software.

    Creating an RSS feed site

    This is a custom Rails application. What do you mean by you were "looking over the code" -- is it visible somewhere?

    Do you have Rails experience? Building a site like this is reasonably straightforward for an experienced Rails developer, but for a beginner it would be a challenging task. There are several libraries available that handle the RSS processing but you need to know your way around Ruby a bit to use them effectively.

    The place to start is to learn Ruby on Rails. Good starting point are the tutorials at the bottom of this page on Rails wiki:

    http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pa...artedWithRails

    The next step is probably to get one of the starter books. The Sitepoint book would be a good start:

    http://www.sitepoint.com/books/rails1/

    or Pragmatic's Agile Web Development with Rails:

    Thanks for the tutorials,. So I guess Ruby is designed only to make custom made scripts?

    No. Ruby is a versatile programming language. Have a look at this guide to the language:

    Then look at this site to find out what Rails does.

    NYXX,

    Have you considered actually following any of the advice already posted? I know that may be a radical departure from just asking the same sorts of questions over and over, but I am confident it is far more productive.

    Work through a couple of Rails tutorials! Doing that will answer your basic questions.

    you could do this pretty simply using the feed manager / publisher and the CMS in XLsuite.
