Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-404) restfull and shorter urls for lists and shows
Date Wed, 08 Jul 2009 04:00:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-404?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12728489#action_12728489

Benoit Chesneau commented on COUCHDB-404:
-----------------------------------------

You could still use relatives urls with this format but against db: they aren't contained
in the _design though but I don't think it's a problem since the patch don't break anything.
But using format parameter make CouchDB a real resource/documnt repository where you could
choose format of docs & views. And I think it's very usefull for some usages.

> 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 :
> http://github.com/benoitc/couchdb/tree/formuri
> 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
