Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-230) Add Support for Rewritable URL
Date Thu, 19 Aug 2010 20:45:16 GMT


Benoit Chesneau commented on COUCHDB-230:

Following thread on ml

Imo Path alias shouln't be in vhosts but in its own section since this is not a vhost but
more an "aliases" section is we follow the apache server wording. 3 questions anyway :

1) What happend anyway if a couchapp is self configuring but another app with same name already
exist ?

2) What happend if path replace db path

3) security concern how to make sure a couchapp won't self configure even if the user is connected
as admin ?

I think anyway for 2, that having it in /_root or /_/ would be better so api always available.
Or at least, this prefix should be configurable (/ , /app or watever).

write that:

it a bit easier for replication so we don't have to write the rules on each web server where
a db gets replicated.
> Here are a few propositions from davisp:
> <davisp> alisdair: how so? rewriting urls should be in _design documents, since
they're in _design docs they should be limited to per db namespaces
> <davisp> bobesponja: I don't know that anyone has looked at it seriously, but my
first guess is that we'd just make a _design/doc "urls" member that's a list of regex's and
targets as is fairly standard practice
> <davisp> bobesponja: or perhaps, regex's -> erlang handler
> <davisp> the second might not be as fun
