Hello, i need to create a product list from products in my table, i want to be able to write in a textbox and have fuzzy live search from the table. i searched a while bit i found nothing that felt a good starting point. any tip?
Lucene supports fuzzy (Levenshtein) search, so Solr would probably
work for you.
Soulmate is pretty good. There’s a tutorial here that is pretty easy to get started with: http://josephndungu.com/tutorials/fast-autocomplete-search-terms-rails
Also have a look at Searchkick.
take a llok to this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJ8IRlRcFhI from Mike Hibbert in his Ruby on Rails - Build your own ecommerce Engine tutorial.
He show how you can create and use a rails engine, I believe you will understand how to search your catalog with it.
