    Help with Ruby to program search on website

    Hi all,

    I'm working on a project to use ruby as the programming language for my website's search engine. I love the language, but I'm stumped as to how I can implement it as a search application. Can anyone give me tips or pointers on how to get this off the ground and running.

    Thanks in advance,

    Darren.

    Are you searching a database or files? If it's a database and you're using Rails, then the Search Generator can ease your pain

    You can also use ferret which is a ruby port of Java's Lucene indexing search platform. Its actaully really nice. Works with plain text files or a database:

    Thanks for the replies. I'm searching files on the website. I want to keep it as simple as possible, though a search engine by definition is not all that simple...so I'm finding out.
