Texticle exposes full text search capabilities from PostgreSQL, and allows you to declare full text indexes. Texticle will extend ActiveRecord with named_scope methods making searching easy and fun!
Only works with PostgreSQL
Declare your index in your model:
class Product < ActiveRecord::Base index do name description end end
Use the search method
Full text searches can be sped up by creating indexes. To create the indexes, add these lines to your Rakefile:
require 'rubygems' require 'texticle/tasks'
$ rake texticle:create_indexes
Alternatively, you can create a migration that will build your indexes:
$ rake texticle:migration
Texticle may be used outside rails, but works best with rails.
sudo gem install texticle
