Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-547) add "compact view" button to futon
Date Fri, 30 Oct 2009 03:25:59 GMT


Paul Joseph Davis commented on COUCHDB-547:


Patch looks mostly good. Couple things:

1. When you're not on a design doc the disabled "Compact View" button shouldn't be visible.
2. The compact view should probably be to the right of "Delete Database" to make sure that
DB operations are grouped. Plus it'll help as "Compact View" isn't always visible, thus lessening
confusion if buttons moved.
3. The dialog box text needs a bit of work:

"Compacting a view removes deleted documents and previous revisions. It is an irreversible
operation and may take a while to complete for large views."

Should read something like:

"View compaction will affect all views in this design document. This operation may take some
time to complete. Your views will still operate normally during compaction."

Or some such. Deleting and removing and revisions and irreversible are all things that people
shouldn't be forced to consider when doing view compaction because none of those are remotely

Other than those minor tweaks, it looks good to me.
