Little Ferret Problem

I’ve implemented Ferret, using the instructions here:

I get no errors in the application at all… however, I always get 0
I built an index off of some data, it exists in the index/ directory,
form submits find… etc…

Just 0 results… all the time :slight_smile:

I confirmed the data from my models is being put into the index…
am having a hard time debugging why the lookup isn’t working.
Any insight would be greatly appeciated !
Thanks !


Write up a test that shows your code not working. That will help in
figuring out what is wring.

lol… I would… but thought somebody (Jan perhaps ?) may have some
into this prior to going this deep.
Her implementation contains a lot of code, and I’ve debugged as far as I
without going into the Ferret source… which I was hoping I wouldn’t
to do :expressionless:


sorry, but haven’t had a chance lately to test myself with newer
Versions of

It would be great if you could update the wiki page while you are going
Please have a look at the ferret wiki. as
as the rforum code for more advanced
examples of ferret-rails integration. There are quite a few railers who
managed the integration in different ways judging by this mailing list
the ferret mailing list.

Hi Dylan,

Sorry for the slow reply. My guess would be that you are searching a
different field than the one you put your data in. I’d need to see a
some of your code to tell for sure. I hope you work out your problem.


Thanks Jan, as I debug more (when I have time), I’ll update this thread
well as the wiki if needed. Thank you !

Hey David !

Thanks very much for the reply. I’ve put this on the back-burner for
as I have a million other priorties at the moment, but when I revisit
I’ll definitely keep you posted.

By the way, thank you so much (and Jan for the tutorial !) for this
project. Great job !
