Random Notes

 |  ferret, rails

  • Acts_as_ferret’s DRb server now handles index rebuilds nicely. Every rebuild will create an entirely new index. While reindexing runs your application will continue to use the old index. That should bring us a huge step towards the next release of aaf.

  • Online chat site Lingr is using acts_as_ferret to provide it’s users with full text search across everything that ever has been said there. They built a neat analyzer to handle multilingual content (including non-latin languages like Chinese or Japanese) in both documents and queries which should be open sourced soon.

  • Last but not least, I’ll talk about Ferret and acts_as_ferret at Rails-Konferenz.
