At Rejaw (http://rejaw.com), we are using Ultrasphinx, with great success. It's a little more difficult to configure than Thinking Sphinx, but it's also more flexible, and we needed that flexibility.

here is what i am apeficlaly trying to do: I am creating a databse of some data i have gotten as a flat file. i have about 2K entries each tagged with tags anywhere between 1 to 7. There are probably a total of about 50 different type of tags. Write now my data is flat and not in a relational db. i want to be able to allow people to surface what products when they are looking at one paritcular product are related to it based on all the things that one product is tagged with. i am thinking of being lazy and just diong text search of the tag field and then aprsing out all of the tags and making queries to find all of the oher items with that tag. i could of course make the db relational which make searh faster. given i only have about 2k items, it seems like sphinx will be fast enough to have to avoid playing with the data i have. it does not seem like i need a sphinx plugin with all of the bells and whistle to do teh above. it seems like thinking sphinx will do the job. thoguhts?

anyone know if any of these sphinx plugins automatically updates ones index without having to do it oneself. looking into sphinx apparently you have tell sphinx to re-index with a rake command.

If you really need live updates, you should consider using Solr and the acts_as_solr plugin. - Maurício Linhares http://alinhavado.wordpress.com/ (pt-br) | http://blog.codevader.com/ (en)
