Multi Column Search Plugin
# Currently requires Rails 3 Active Record or above
Quick and dirty multi column LIKE searches. Need to search accross multiple columns, like company(name, address, city, state, zip)
Running lots of queries or have a large data set? You should probably upgrade to a real search back-end already!
Install as plugin
rails plugin install git://github.com/jackhq/multi_column_search.git
Add a search method to your model by calling multi_column_search with the fields you want to search.
class Company multi_column_search :name, :address, :city, :state, :zip end
Search for a single or multi value across all searched columns.
Company.search('Sam Comp') # => any company with name, address, city, state, zip containing with Sam Comp
Rails 3 Gem
# add to your gemfile in bundler bundle install
