MirMaid uses the Ferret search engine for dynamic searches across resources.

Enabling search

Ferret's dynamic text search can be enabled by setting the property in the config/mirmaid_config.yml file:

  ferret: true

If you did not enable this option when you loaded your local MirMaid installation, then you need to manually build the Ferret indexes:

rake mirmaid:ferret:index

Search syntax

The Ferret search engine uses a rich query language that accepts wildcards (*,?) and many different operators. Read more about the possibilities here
