scoped_search is a simple Rails plugin that will make it easy to search your ActiveRecord models. Searching is performed using a query string, which should be passed to the named_scope search_for that uses SQL LIKE conditions for searching (ILIKE for Postgres). You can specify what fields should be used for searching.


Installing scoped_search

The recommended method to enable scoped_search in your project is adding the scoped_search gem to your environment. Add the following code to your Rails configuration in config/environment.rb: do |config|
  config.gem 'scoped_search'

Run rake gems:install to install the gem.

Deprecated: alternatively, install scoped_search as a Rails plugin:

script/plugin install git://
