Amazing gem to integrate powerful search capabilities into your Rails application, on top of Elasticsearch. I recently used it to build a global "cross-model" smart search for a CRM. It even supports useful features, like: misspellings, suggestions, stemming, ... and can reindex data with no downtime.

prawnpdf/prawn

A good gem to create a simple PDF, but the main risk I see is that the last release of the gem happened in 2020. Also, you cannot "edit" PDFs with it. So in my case I used "hexapdf" gem

A must-have solution for your Rails app. If you doing anything bigger than a landing page you should use this gem. Easy to configure and by adding even the most basic rules you can protect your site from DDOS.

Of course, you can also use Cloudflare but depending on requirements this gem is also a nice option.
