I’ve just started working with Rails, having come from a Cold Fusion
background. I’m curious how best to deal with a huge result set. For
example, I’m building an app that contains users. I’ve used
scaffolding to setup my initial pages for CRUD operations on users.
All that is great. The problem is, I’m going to end up with 1000+
users in this app once it’s done. Having people paginate through 1000
users to find the one they want seems a bit tedious. Is there a nice
Rails way to handle this problem? Like some way to filter down the
result list by last name, or user group, etc. i.e. take some input
from the user and use that to make the pagination list smaller? Any
help is appreciated. Thanks!
