Implement a hash tags like feature in rails

General • Asked by John Munyi

Hi ,

I have looking for an actively supported gem to implement a hash tag like feature that can easily be used as a metric in feedback that has a lot of text. I checked-out

   https://github.com/ralovely/simple_hashtag 
   https://github.com/twitter/twitter-text-rb

and they both look out-dated ... any other out there , before i build one from scratch


The thing about these gems is that they're probably quite simple if they're parsing out hashtags. Not too much to it which is nice and means they probably don't need a lot of maintenance.

I actually have never used any, but if you do end up using one, I'd love to hear how it goes!


Hi Chris looks like, https://github.com/ralovely/simple_hashtag is working brilliantly straight out of the box with now issues , happy to report
