Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-76) API access to the Map side of Map/Reduce pairs
Date Wed, 04 Jun 2008 15:43:45 GMT
API access to the Map side of Map/Reduce pairs

                 Key: COUCHDB-76
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: HTTP Interface
            Reporter: Chris Anderson
            Priority: Minor

Everytime I create a reduce function, I also make a separate view that has a byte-identical
map (w/o the reduce), just to have access to the map that gets generated anyway. It seems
like the API could make the map side available, even when there is a reduce. Keeping the two
view functions identical is hard to do without automating it, and the consequences of failing
to keep them in sync can be expensive.

This would require a change to the external api, because currently the only way to distinguish
between map and reduce functions is through view name. The new way would require something
like /my-db/_view/mydesign/mymapreduce?map_only=true or somesuch.
