how do implement a rails popularity/trending algorithm!!

AustinLan asked in General
  • I'm making a web app and I want to sort through a model based on popularity/trendiness, kind of like reddit/hacker news. I want to determine the popularity based on the count of comments, likes, and impression divided by the creation date from the whatsapp web

Here's a gist that contains Reddit's popularity algorithm that you could use. It's pretty simple and just uses upvote, but you could add in comments and impressions to the calculation too.

This is another approach that you should check out.
