Fractals, Chaos, and Control Systems on Rails


Read your Rails Heroes

Posted by Harry Seldon on February 03, 2009

Ruby on Rails is moving fast. So you need to stay tuned to Rails news. What is best than reading RoR heroes’ blogs ? Yep, nothing.
To help you, Railsinside has on its home page a list of Rails heroes. Unfortunately, as the links link toward their blogs and not towards their RSS flow, it might be tedious to add all the flows to your reader. And sometimes it is not immediate to understand where the flow is hidden.
It is only recently that I have added all these flows to my reader. In order to facilitate you the work, here is the Railsinside list of Rails heroes with links to their RSS flow. For some of them, I have not found the flow. If you know their address, please leave it in the comments. A few more flows will be suggested as a bonus. All these flows are added to my public netvibes page. Check it to have a look at what it looks like to be so close to all these minds.

Let’s add to this RoR’s blog, Railsinside and Rubyinside:

Some other great flows I have in my list are:

[EDIT] Here is the OPML for all the previous RSS flows. Using this file you can import the links into your preferred RSS reader.

[EDIT] Thanks to Luke the list is now complete. And in case, like me, you did not know this Firefox feature, at the right of the url bar you have a star and a orange wave sign (the RSS logo). Just click on it to get the RSS flows that are ‘hidden’ (or not finally ;-) ) in the blog. Star is to fave the blog.

Then, I won’t resist to recommend you my flow ;-)

And finally for French readers:

Let me know in the comments if you see any problem with the links or if you know one of the missing links. Also, if you have a blog about Rails activities, you are welcome to leave a link to your RSS flow. I might add the best ones to this list.

Happy reading.
PS Other Rails resources
PPS Doing this, I was amazed by the number of feeds going through feedburners. But if you are interested by stats about your feed you need to use it. So, I guess I will have to use it too.

    Very nice and helpful list, 10x for sharing. But one blog I see missing - Ryan’s Scraps ( http://ryandaigle.com/ ). This is the blog from where I found about the new stuff in rails :)

    any chance to post OPML here?

  5. Chris O'Sullivan on February 06, 2009 at 07:22 pm

    James Adam can be found at http://interblah.net/

  6. Chris O'Sullivan on February 06, 2009 at 07:23 pm

  7. Harry Seldon on February 08, 2009 at 12:12 pm

    @Chris, thanks, yes their blogs can be found at these addresses. I do know them as the are given in Railsinside’s list. However, on these blogs there are no links to the RSS flow. That is what I am looking for.

  8. Harry Seldon on February 08, 2009 at 12:15 pm

    @ Radoslav, good idea, Ryan’s blog is awesome. I have added him to the list.

  9. Harry Seldon on February 08, 2009 at 12:29 pm

    @rimmer333, good idea, I’ll give you the OPML this week.

    for hampton catlin:


  11. Harry Seldon on February 15, 2009 at 01:30 pm

    @rimmer333, I have added the OPML file.
    Thanks for the idea.

  12. Laurent Farcy on February 27, 2009 at 06:10 pm

    Thx for sharing this great list. I had some of them but surely not all.

  13. Luke Redpath on February 28, 2009 at 03:51 am

    Harry, thanks for adding me to the list; I’m surprised you didn’t find my RSS feed on my blog, it’s set in a link tag so your browser should discover it automatically (Firefox, Safari definitely do).

    Anyway, it’s http://feeds.feedburner.com/LukeRedpath

  14. Harry Seldon on February 28, 2009 at 12:44 pm

    @ Luke, thanks so very much for your comment. I did not know this Firefox feature and that explains everything: why some blogs did not have links to syndication and why when they exist the links can be hard to find. The list is now complete.
    Enlighting! I wished I had known earlier. That is the nice thing with blogging or sharing you learn a lot. Thanks to the comments I learnt about other links, OPML and now this FF feature. Cool!
