Subject [Couchdb Wiki] Trivial Update of "HTTP_view_API" by DaveCottlehuber
Date Wed, 15 Feb 2012 08:35:26 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Couchdb Wiki" for change notification.

The "HTTP_view_API" page has been changed by DaveCottlehuber:

  In my case, views that were 26G, 27G, 39G, and 40G, shrank to 2.8G, 2.8G, 3.4G, and 3.5G,
- ==== Temporary Views ====
+ == Temporary Views ==
  One-off queries (eg. views you don't want to save in the CouchDB database) can be done via
the special view ''_temp_view''. Temporary views are only good during development. Final code
should not rely on them as they are very expensive to compute each time they get called and
they get increasingly slower the more data you have in a database. If you think you can't
solve something in a permanent view that you can solve in an ad-hoc view, you might want to
reconsider. (TODO: add typical examples and solutions).
