Generally, your Rails application is probably not the best place to consume RSS feeds. Most of it needs to happen asynchronously to prevent your app from becoming slow. It's also a mess to deal with multiple formats and breaking feeds.

For this reason, APIs like Superfeedr exist and we recently introduced a Rails Engine which makes all this very simple and elegant.
