Ferret and acts_as_ferret

December 20, 2006

I started implementing search in ClockingIT yesterday, and was prepared for a long session and massive codeage to get it done. Enter Ferret and acts_as_ferret, and the whole thing including the results page with highlighting of the search terms was done in a bit over two hours. Consider me amazed.

And when I got home from work today, the Wife had created a new look for the site as well. Even cleaner and slicker than it was. Things are looking great for the launch of the next version sometime before new-years. Just half a permissions system left to implement, and a bit of spit-shine and we’re good to go.
