RediSearchRails

Code Climate Inline docs Gem Version

This gems simplifies integration with RediSearch module (http://redisearch.io/). This software is of Alpha quality and is provided with no warranties whatsoever. Additionally RediSearch is still not officially released so major features may change.

Installation

Install Redis and RediSearch following instructions on http://redisearch.io/Quick_Start/. Until modules are released with Redis 4 this requires compiling Redis from unstable branch from GitHub.

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'redi_search_rails'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install redi_search_rails

Configuration

Create config/initializers/redi_search_rails.rb

REDI_SEARCH = Redis.new(host: '127.0.0.1', port: '6379')

Usage

class User < ApplicationRecord
  include RediSearchRails
  redi_search_schema   name: 'TEXT', email: 'TEXT', age: 'NUMERIC'
end
# => to create index run in rails console
User.ft_create
# => populate index with records for all users
User.ft_add_all
# => or you can do it for specific record
User.ft_add(User.where(id: 1))
# => search
User.ft_search(keyword: 'keyword here', offset: 0, num: 10)
# => output
[1, "gid://application_name/User/unique_id", ["name", "Bob", "age", "100"]]
# => format results as array of objects
User.ft_search_format(keyword: 'keyword here', offset: 0, num: 10)
# => output
[{"id": "gid://application_name/User/unique_id", "name": "Bob", "age": "100"}, {...}]
# => for autocomplete
User.ft_sugadd(record: user, attribute: name)

As unique identifier (doc_id) for records in Redis this gem uses GlobalID. You need to make sure your models support it if you are using ORM other than ActiveRecord.

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment. To understand the code look in lib/redi_search_rails.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.

Testing

Testing this gem requires having local Redis with RediSearch module. This makes it very difficult to set it up with services like Codeship.

TODOs

  • ActiveModel callbacks to index records on saving and remove from Redis on delete
  • Rake tasks to manage indexes
  • Support configuring SCORE, WEIGHT and other options
  • Support indexing fields from related models (index group name if user belongs to a group)
  • Support GEO filters
  • Stopwords configuration
  • Minimum keyword length to index
  • Configurable method for doc_id, not just default to_global_id
  • More test coverage and documentation
