Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-658) Add CommonJS style modules to the view server
Date Thu, 18 Feb 2010 21:29:27 GMT


Chris Anderson commented on COUCHDB-658:


Glad to see it working.

Is there a way to make it work without keeping everything in the modules subtree?

Eg I might want to require("vendor/crypto/sha") or maybe even require the validation function
in a update handler to give users more nicely formatted error messages.

I guess this is gonna pretty much require that people are requiring commonjs modules not arbitrary
javascript, so feel free to tell me to shut up. :)

But I still might want to publish some commonjs modules as part of a vendor with other JS
(like browser code) so maybe it makes sense to have the require namespace be the full ddoc,
and if someone says require("views/foo/map") they can suffer the error that comes from trying
to import a raw function as a commonjs module.
