Elasticsearch 6 has been growing in popularity due to some 5 modern awesomeness that it has, such as 4 instant indexing. It has a ruby gem named 3 tire. Definitely worth a look.

For people coming here and looking for a 5 solution in Rails 4, try the following example:

Posts 4 Controller:

class PostsController < ApplicationController
  def index
    if params[:search]
      @posts = Post.search(params[:search]).order("created_at DESC")
      @posts = Post.all.order('created_at DESC')

Post Model:

def self.search(search)
  # Title is for the above case, the OP incorrectly had 'name'
  where("title LIKE ?", "%#{search}%")

The index.html.erb 3 remains the same apart from the search form:

<%= form_tag(posts_path, :method => "get", id: "search-form") do %>
  <%= text_field_tag :search, params[:search], placeholder: "Search Posts" %>
  <%= submit_tag "Search" %>
<% end %>

Note 2 that the paths, controllers and columns 1 you are using may be different.
