Autocomplete search across multiple models with results from each model

Rails • Asked by nynhex

I'm building a simple wiki app and would like to introduce autocomplete search using Searchkick or pg_search. In the search box I'd like to be able to do a search across both an Article and Category model searching Article for title and body and Category by the name column.

I think I can do this with pg_search using multisearch, but I'm curious as to how to display this information using JSON in the search box and how it works similar to Gorails.

Looking foward to an episode on this :)
