Ransack has a new maintainer!


I’m really psyched (and more than a little bit relieved) to announce that Ransack has a new maintainer. Ryan Bigg, of Ruby Hero fame and SpreeCommerce employ, has agreed to take on maintaining it. I’ve long known (and been flattered by knowing) that Spree used MetaSearch to do a bunch of searching legwork in the application, and wondered what would happen when it came time to update to Ransack. I had a vested interest in Ransack as a user, back when writing it, but between my change in job focus and lack of any new apps with the particular use case that Ransack was written to address, I’ve had difficulty finding time to give it the attention it deserves.

I’m truly thankful for Ryan’s willingness to help out, and the timing couldn’t have worked out better. Read on to see just how good his timing was, courtesy of Storify.
