Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-404) restfull and shorter urls for lists and shows
Date Wed, 08 Jul 2009 03:52:14 GMT


Chris Anderson commented on COUCHDB-404:

There are reasons to support both configurations.

The _design doc path allows rewriting proxies to treat applications as resources, but the
shortcut version is easier on user's eyes.

We could have a big argument about which is better but frankly they both have their place.
As long as we don't screw up replication I don't have a problem with relaxing the query syntax,
especially with such a simple patch.

>                 Key: COUCHDB-404
>                 URL:
>             Project: CouchDB
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: HTTP Interface
>    Affects Versions: 0.10
>         Environment: *
>            Reporter: Benoit Chesneau
> We discussing yesterday with @jchris and @jasondavies about shortening
> shows and lists urls and we arrived on this format :
> /db/docid?show=dname/showname
> /db/_view/dname/vname?list=listname
> This change is very usefull since it allows shorter urls and I think
> it's more RESTFul. I had time this morning to write this and I created
> a branch on my github repository :
> To do this I refactored a little couch_httpd_show to reuse code to
> display lists and shows and added URL parameters parsing/validation.
> All changes made in this branch don't break current CouchDB behavior
> so :
> * Views are available on
> /db/_design/designame/_view/viewname (current behavior) but also on
> /db/_view/designame/viewname
> * Lists are available on
> /db/_design/designame/_list/listname/viewname (current behavior)
> but also on
>  /db/_view/designame/viewname?list=listname
> * Shows are available on
> /db/_design/designame/_show/showname/docid
> but also on
> /db/docid?show=designame/showname
