Natural Search


#1

Does anyone know what the best approach would be to do a search against
mutiple fields from one text string in a RoR app?

My client wants its user base to be able to issue a search like:

“Record Stores in 12321 Jazz”

So, esentially, the query would have to check a couple tables, and a
couple fields in each table.

Thanks for any help.

Take a look at ferret and acts_as_ferret.

I havn’t used them myself but I believe it has the ability to search
accross model and fields. I wouldn’t know how to do it tho.
