= acts_as_ferret

This ActiveRecord mixin adds full text search capabilities to any Rails model.

It is heavily based on the original acts_as_ferret plugin done by
Kasper Weibel and a modified version done by Thomas Lockney, which 
both can be found on http://ferret.davebalmain.com/trac/wiki/FerretOnRails

== Project Homepage

http://rm.jkraemer.net/projects/show/aaf

== Installation

Aaf is available via git from rubyforge.org and github.com. Github also offers
tarball downloads, check out http://github.com/jkraemer/acts_as_ferret/tree/master .

=== Installation inside your Rails project via script/plugin

script/plugin install git://github.com/jkraemer/acts_as_ferret.git

The rubyforge repository is located at git://rubyforge.org/actsasferret.git

=== Old SVN repository

In november 2008 I stopped updating the svn repository that has been the main
repository for aaf for several years. In case you want to retrieve any of the
older versions of the plugin, it's still there at

svn://code.jkraemer.net/acts_as_ferret/

=== System-wide installation with Rubygems

<tt>sudo gem install acts_as_ferret</tt>

To use acts_as_ferret in your project, add the following line to your
project's config/environment.rb:

<tt>require 'acts_as_ferret'</tt>

Call the aaf_install script that came with the gem inside your project
directory to install the sample config file and the drb server start/stop
script.


== Usage

include the following in your model class (specifiying the fields you want to get indexed):

<tt>acts_as_ferret :fields => [ :title, :description ]</tt>

now you can use ModelClass.find_with_ferret(query) to find instances of your model
whose indexed fields match a given query. All query terms are required by default, 
but explicit OR queries are possible. This differs from the ferret default, but 
imho is the more often needed/expected behaviour (more query terms result in 
less results).

Please see ActsAsFerret::ActMethods#acts_as_ferret for more information.
