list.blogug.ch updates

Posted by Patrice Neff Thu, 07 Sep 2006

This morning in the train I finally came around to fix a few issues with list.blogug.ch that had prevented a release for a while. The big change: search is now fast!

the search uses a Ferret index with the acts_as_ferret module. Ferret is basically the Ruby version of Lucene.

And the URLs are normalized when a new entry is added. This should leave us with far fewer duplicates than we now have. I find most of the duplicates when checking the new submissions but it still was an annoyance.
