sudo gem install coletivo rails g coletivo rake db:migrate
At your Rails model that represents a person (can be an User, Member, or something like that):
class User < ActiveRecord::Base has_own_preferences # ... end
So, a person can rate things:
current_user = User.create(:name => 'Diogenes') movie = Movie.create(:name => 'The Tourist', :year => 2010) current_user.rate!(movie, 4.5)
And after a lot of ratings… recommendations:
Movie.find_recommendations_for(current_user) # => movies and more movies...
By default, the similarity strategy used is Euclidean Distance, but you can change that passing the strategy option:
Movie.find_recommendations_for(current_user, :strategy => :pearson)

Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
