Multi-Table Search Full Text with Postgres in Rails Jump to Story

Caleb Thompson over on the thoughtbot blog wrote up a piece with Derek Prior about how to do full text search in Rails with Postgres across multiple tables. They achieved this using Textacular, created a database view and GIN indexes on the searched column. Thanks to the latter the search operation was reduced from 3 seconds minimum to about 100 miliseconds.
