An advice for search

I have a Shop model with some attributes:

role_number :integer(10)
role_date :date
name :string(255)
ssn :string(255)
nationality :string(255)
address :string(255)
number :string(255)
website :string(255)
district :integer(10)
sector :string(255)
square_meters :integer(131089)
duaap :integer(10)
description :string(255)
state :string(255)
notes :text

I want to create a form for searching on one field or on two fields or
on three fields…or on all fields.
There is a gem that facilitate this work?
I’m thinking about meta_search, what do you think about?

I use searchlogic. This gem is very easy.

I just used MetaSearch for the first time last month and love it. I
found it
very easy to work with and quite powerful.

What solution do you adopt?
A form with all fields in it?

If you use MetaSearch, it helps you build your form – see the readme:
https://github.com/ernie/meta_search

Now, the app I was working on was more complicated so I did actually
create
a class so that I could use form builder on my own, and then wrap
metasearch
behind that. The form consisted of a number of filters. But even if I
went
straight to metasearch, yes, I would use a form with the fields I want
to
search which may or may not map to the actual fields I am searching.

In this asciicast
http://asciicasts.com/episodes/251-metawhere-metasearch is said that
searchlogic doesn’t work with rails 3.

Sorry, i went at my gemfile and i saw what i use for search is
meta_search.
Execuse me.

If I want to search base on values on all fields I must create a long
form.
I’ve found http://www.2dconcept.com/jquery-grid-rails-plugin it seems
nice, what do you think about?

You know I almost cried the first time I used meta_search… in the
past I
have written my own searches

Also, and I should have said this before, I noticed that in your
property list it looks like you’re storing social security numbers
(SSN). I just want to add a friendly word of advice - encrypt them if
you can. I can see a lot of havoc happening if some hacker got his
hands on a list of unencrypted (or weakly encrypted) SSN’s, both from
the standpoint of the person who’s identity might be stolen, and for
your organization, who may end up fielding a LOT of lawsuits as a
result if something like that happens.

Here’s a link to one approach that I’ve used myself before, and I
thought it worked rather well:
http://stuff-things.net/2007/06/11/encrypting-sensitive-data-with-ruby-on-rails/

Good luck!

Thank you very much for your important advice.

You can do:

<%= f.text_field :field1_or_field2_equals %>

Needless to say, if you get to the point where you’re doing something
like…

<%=

f.text_field :field1_or_field2_or_field3_or_field4_or_field5_equals %>

…then you really don’t want to be using something like MetaSearch –
you want to go with a fulltext search gem like Thinknig Sphinx.
