Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-348) / should redirect to a human readable page when accessed from a browser
Date Mon, 24 Aug 2009 20:38:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-348?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12747057#action_12747057
] 

Chris Anderson commented on COUCHDB-348:
----------------------------------------

The check would be relatively straightforward, web-sane, and friendly to API clients. No browser-sniffing
required.

If the client sends an HTTP Accept header that prefers HTML to JSON (as browsers do), then
we'd send HTML, otherwise we'd send JSON.

> As more people are adopting CouchDB, the number of questions along the lines of "All
I see is {"couchdb":"Welcome","version":"0.10.0a773399"}, what now?"
> If this page redirected to /_utils/ (or maybe something more user-focussed) when the
accept headers included html, we could make the first-time user experience more palatable.
> There's some code in COUCHDB-234 that might be helpful here.
