How to use index as model in rails

Hi all,

I’ve used ruby and ferret for the past one month to index resumes. Now I
need a web front-end to the application and the obvious choice turns out
be rails. But as I’m not interested in using a database and intend to
use the index, I’m not sure as to how to put it into the MVC framework
the model implicitly takes a database. Is there a way it can take an
instead by using acts_as_ferret.
Basically, all the functionality I want is to take some input and
provide it
to the back-end ruby code which does the parsing, and some index related
work, which may be done either at the front-end or preferably, at the
back-end. It’s the usage of rails I’m not sure about as I’ve never used

Thanks a lot,
