Texticle 1.0.1 Released

Get ready to tickle some text with texticle! A new version is released!

texticle version 1.0.1 has been released!

Texticle exposes full text search capabilities from PostgreSQL, and
allows you to declare full text indexes. Texticle will extend
ActiveRecord with named_scope methods making searching easy and fun!


1.0.1 / 2009-04-14

  • 1 minor enhancement

    • Textical adds a rake task to generate FTS index migrations. Just

      rake textical:migration


In environment.rb:

config.gem ‘texticle’

Declare your index in your model:

class Product < ActiveRecord::Base
index do

Use the search method

Product.search(‘hello world’)

Full text searches can be sped up by creating indexes. To create the
indexes, add these lines to your Rakefile:

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘texticle/tasks’

Then run:

$ rake texticle:create_indexes

Alternatively, you can create a migration that will build your indexes:

$ rake texticle:migration


  • Texticle may be used outside rails, but works best with rails.


  • sudo gem install texticle

Awesome, I hope it works bette then acts_as_tsearch, but knowing your
track record I’m sure of it.

Keep up good work!
