How to Generate Tags from Description (input)?

My users provide some description ( TEXT field) and I would like to
generate tags automatically from them?

are there any plugins available?. Any directions would be appreciated.

cheers

Looks like acts_as_taggable_on is what you need. The example included
on that page should make it pretty easy to do.

Thanks Kyle, unfortunately there is no provision wherein it generates
tags automatically ( I still have to assign it explicitly - which I
don’t want to)

You’re trying to pick out keywords out of the description to use as
tags? You could use a language parser to pick out sentence components

  • Subject, Direct Object - and use those as tags.
