Fellow Ruby P.mers,
These past two weeks I've been struggling to learn how to do
advanced (full-text) searching on my websites. After giving up on mysql
full-text I decided to try out Ferret, a full-text search engine written
in Ruby (it’s a gem), along with Acts_as_ferret.
What I found was an extremely powerful search engine, that didn't
have a good tutorial to show how to do basic and advanced searches. So
I decided to write a detailed Acts_as_ferret tutorial at:
If you ever decide to implement advanced searching on your website,
I hope you all find it very useful.
