Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-321) Futon breaks when used with a reverse proxy

Futon breaks when used with a reverse proxy

                 Key: COUCHDB-321
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Administration Console
    Affects Versions: 0.9
         Environment: Affects all platforms.
            Reporter: Jack Moffitt
            Priority: Minor
         Attachments: futon.patch

It is often convenient to reverse proxy CouchDB at a url like /couch.  Unfortunately, while
CouchDB will work perfectly in this situation, Futon cannot handle it as jquery.couch.js uses
absolute URLs to access all CouchDB functions.

I've attached a small patch that fixes this problem by:

1. Adding a urlPrefix attribute to $.couch which it uses to construct its URLs.
2. Adding logic to the futon.js constructor that figures out a suitable prefix and sets $.couch.urlPrefix
to use this.

Any client code that makes use of $.couch will need to do something similar.  Since only the
application and the adminstrator will know what the prefix should be or how to deduce it,
I didn't really know of a better way to handle this.
