Thinking Sphinx


First, if you haven’t done so already, check out the main usage page. Once you’ve done that, the next place to look for information is the specific method docs – ThinkingSphinx::Search and ThinkingSphinx::Index::Builder in particular.

Keep in mind that while Thinking Sphinx works for ActiveRecord with Merb, it doesn’t yet support DataMapper (although that is planned).


Fork on GitHub and after you’ve committed tested patches, send a pull request.

To get the spec suite running, you will need to install the not-a-mock gem if you don’t already have it:

git clone git:// cd not-a-mock rake gem gem install pkg/not_a_mock-1.1.0.gem

Then set up your database

cp spec/fixtures/database.yml.default spec/fixtures/database.yml mysqladmin -u root create thinking_sphinx

You should now have a passing test suite from which to build your patch on.

rake spec
