ransack VS Searchkick - a user suggested alternative
2 projects | 12 Aug 2021
API - convention for filter that can have an occurrence of the value passed?

You might be looking for something like Ransack - https://github.com/activerecord-hackery/ransack
Airtable-like table filtering

I use ransack for this and find it very powerful and flexible without the need to rely on complex JS.
An Unofficial Active Admin Guide
First of all, you should take a look at Active Admin's documentation regarding filters. You can continue your overview with the official README and wiki, where, among other things, you can find view-helpers to create custom search forms.
For especially complicated cases, you can consider learning how to create custom predicates and Ransackers - extensions that convert parameters directly into Arel (internal library ActiveRecord, used to build SQL queries).
The postfix _cont is one of the many predicates available in Ransack. Predicates determine which SQL query is to be generated for search. You can read more about all available predicates in the official wiki.
Building an Advanced Search Form in Rails 6
1 project | dev.to | 30 Aug 2020
You can use gems like Ransack to build search forms much faster, but for the purpose of learning and performance we will be building this feature ourselves. Throughout the process, you will also learn how to customize Rails default pluralization. By the end, we will be able to search for Pokemon by name, type, and region.
For GET requests - When do you create a new endpoint and when would you use a query param for the backend to decide what data to give back?
1 project | reddit.com/r/rails | 10 Jun 2022
I use has_scope and it's typically handled in the index with querystring filters e.g. ?user=1 (or ?users=1 if multiple users). I do also add convenience routes for common filters, though, e.g. /users/1/likes.
Best way to filter an index page.

The has_scope gem (https://github.com/heartcombo/has_scope) is a nice middleground between ransack and multiple if-statements.
