Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-1) MIME types for attachments
Date Sat, 08 Mar 2008 23:43:46 GMT
MIME types for attachments

                 Key: COUCHDB-1
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Noah Slater
            Priority: Minor

There is AFAICT currently no standard way to associate a MIME type with
attachments. This is needed for CouchDB to be able to serve the attachment
with the correct Content-Type header.

There's already a type field in the attachment JSON structure, which I'd
suggest should be renamed to encoding, as it's intended to determine how
the content has been encoded in the JSON data (for example "base64"). With
that out of the way, the type field should contain the MIME type. When an
attachment is added, the client should be able to specify the MIME type
using this field, but CouchDB could use a sane default
("application/octet-stream") if the field is missing.
