Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-230) Add Support for Rewritable URL
Date Fri, 30 Jan 2009 19:52:59 GMT
Add Support for Rewritable URL
------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-230
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-230
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Patrick Aljord
             Fix For: 1.0


It would be good if couchdb would allow to rewrite urls so that instead of having to write
that:

http://127.0.0.1:5984/blogdb/_design/sofa/account.html

I could just write:

http://127.0.0.1:5984/blogdb/account

It could be done with the web server but having the rewritten rules in the db would make it
a bit easier for replication so we don't have to write the rules on each web server where
a db gets replicated.

Here are a few propositions from davisp:

<davisp> alisdair: how so? rewriting urls should be in _design documents, since they're
in _design docs they should be limited to per db namespaces
<davisp> bobesponja: I don't know that anyone has looked at it seriously, but my first
guess is that we'd just make a _design/doc "urls" member that's a list of regex's and targets
as is fairly standard practice
<davisp> bobesponja: or perhaps, regex's -> erlang handler
<davisp> the second might not be as fun
