Hello dear codecademy pairs,
I am starting a Rails project, and trying to find a fulltext engine that has friendly setup and also complete documentation. I am trying Solr, but the documentation I’ve found really lacked details (like a complete and careful explanation of all data types I can create on Rails, at the “searchable” attribute (at the model I want to index).
So I had the idea of asking this here, in case someone can point me to a better doc on Solr.
I’ve also checked Elasticsearch, but it seems way harder to understand and to setup.
My project will have searches with a lot of filters (facets), and the dataset will not be huge, so I am willing to choose an engine that’s simple to understand and maintain, but yet powerfull in search features.
I have experience with Sphinx, but I am willing to try something new now.
Can anyone help?
Thanks a lot, folks
