    This was a really good read, thanks. I've got into the habit of jumping straight to PgSearch but could definitely apply this approach to some existing projects.

  • Tips for optimizing pg_search?

    Hey guys. Looking to release an app for mobile that will be using a rails API. The app will heavily rely on search. I know the go-to is to use elasticsearch but wanted to see if there was enough user demand for the MVP before shelling out $50/mo for the heroku add on. In the mean time I've been using pg_search. From the eye test it's performing okay but will be adding a table that houses over 350K records. With this in mind I was wondering if you all had any tips for increasing the overall speed for search from the model and controller level. Also should note that I'm open to any other free search gems if they deem bette fit.

    There are two basic search configurations with pg_search, a Single Model search scope or a multi Model configuration. In my case I am only using the Single Model configuration, but you can read more about multi-search in the documentation.
