I am using thinking-sphinx(ruby gem) which supports realtime indexing. But i guess flying-sphinx doesn't support that. Is there a way to incorporate that.

    Hi Nitin

    Real-time indices are supported, though it's not quite as solid as SQL-backed indices: the one thing missing is the backing up of index data.

    But certainly the latest flying-sphinx gem supports real-time indices - just use the regenerate task instead of rebuild, and perhaps it's worth running the ts:generate rake task on a daily basis to ensure data's up to date.

    Note that ts:generate does not have an fs equivalent, as there's no need to modify behaviour for that task based on the Flying Sphinx infrastructure.

    If you have any further questions, do let me know!
