A simple way to add full text search to your Rails models. Currently supported RDBMs are Postgres anda simple fallback for other RDBMs (e.g. Mysql).
Search redux requires at least Ruby >= 1.9.2 and Rails >= 3.0.0 and Postgres >= 9.2.
Include the gem in your Gemfile:
In your model call the
act_as_searchable with the columns that you want to search and the column for rank-based ordering.
class MyModel act_as_searchable :columns => %w(title content), :rank => 'title' end
You can easily search via the
class MyController def index an_article = MyModel.text_search 'query phrase' end end
