dnif is the new find… for sphinx
dnif is a gem to index data using ActiveRecord finders (for now), letting you index custom methods and not only table columns
gem install dnif
Put line below in your Gemfile
Now, all you need is configure your models and run rake tasks. See below.
require "dnif" class User < ActiveRecord::Base define_index do field :full_name field :email attribute :created_at, :type => :datetime where "active = ?", false end def full_name self.first_name + " " + self.last_name end end rake dnif:configure rake dnif:index rake dnif:start User.search("Rafael Souza")
Improve test suite
Support to delta index (or something like that)
Improve error handler
Try to remove ActiveRecord dependency, making it work with others ORMs/ODMs/etc
Remove the class_name (seems not be necessary anymore)
Move this TODO to Issues
