"Paperboy is a chartbeat-based library for creating HTML files showcasing from your most popular stories over the course of a time period (perhaps for a daily newsletter). It sniffs out META tags from URLs to build images and blurbs for the page. Paperboy builds on concepts from stats_combiner.gem but relies on chartbeat’s historical snapshots endpoint, where stats_combiner uses real-time data."
