UltraSphinx help anyone?


#1

Hey Everyone,

So I posted a thread last night with my problem, but since then I have
figured out the syntax a little better. I am trying to create indexes
on 2 separate models. I have an Account model that “has_many :names”

class Account < ActiveRecord::Base

has_many :names, :dependent => :destroy

is_indexed :fields => [‘s_property_no’],
:include => [{:association_name => “name”, :field => ‘name’, :as
=> ‘property_name’}]

How do I setup the association between the account and name? When I
do rake ultrasphinx:configure, I get an error that says " You have a
nil object when you didn’t expect it! The error occured while
evaluation nil.constantize. For some reason it’s not seeing my “name”
model.

Here’s the name model…

class Name < ActiveRecord::Base
belongs_to :account

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Chris

Ha, I figured it out. I spent most of yesterday, and this morning on
this, and it was simple (usually is). I had my “is_indexed” defined in
the wrong model. It had to be defined in my name model rather than my
account model. It seems a little backwards in my head, but it works
now.

Ok, so I got it working. My is_indexed was defined in the wrong model.
Here’s what I put in the “name” model rather than the “account” model.

Thinking Sphinx Search criteria

is_indexed :fields => [‘name’,‘address’,‘city’,‘state’,‘zip’],
:include => [{:association_name => ‘account’, :field =>
‘s_property_no’, :as => ‘s_property_no’},
{:association_name => ‘account’, :field =>
‘s_service_address’, :as => ‘s_service_address’}

Does anyone know how I reference the ‘name’, 'address, etc from a view
within the account controller views? I can access the “s_property_no,
s_service_address” just fine. I’m not sure how I refer to the other
fields I am search on so I can display them in the search results.

Thanks!

I would love advice from anyone, I am just taking stabs in the dark
right now.
