Subject Re: Proposal for changes in view server/protocol
Date Mon, 02 Aug 2010 17:21:20 GMT
I'm 100% in favor of more radical js improvements like emonk.

However, toward Jason's comment, what do you all think of exposing a saveDoc
function instead? Old code could continue to return the [doc, resp] list
while new code could return a continuation with the signature:

function (resp) or maybe function (resp, error)

where resp can be used to write directly out to the client.

It's maybe some headache implementation but it's very nodejs-like.
Maybe a step in the right direction?

Thanks to jchris on irc for steering me to this and away from some other
complicated mess.

I love this idea however as I am responsible for thousands of unrelated
users' couches, I want significant assurance about the security and
sandboxing of a new view server runtime.

In other words, can CouchDB fix a few bugs in the 1.x branch while working
on major improvements in 2.x?

Specifically, the bug I cited is something so simple, so stupid, that
CouchDB cannot process HTML form input. In this context, I do not care how
impressive the back-end is. I just want good tools for web developers to
use. I would definitely be frustrated to find myself on the API change
