Subject [jira] Updated: (COUCHDB-898) Allow provides() to handle "raw" MIME Type declarations as well as "shortcut" names
Date Tue, 28 Sep 2010 19:11:33 GMT


Benjamin Young updated COUCHDB-898:

    Attachment: provides_reverse_content_type_lookup.diff

The attached patch makes them both shortcut names and full MIME Type names usable to provides().

If code uses:
provides("text/calendar", ....);

then the MIME Type list that's included in (shortcut name "ics") will be used, just as if
the code had been written:
provides("ics", ...);

This hopefully removes confusion for people only familiar with the MIME Types and who have
not yet learned/found the shortcut names.

> Right now, provides() only supports the content types declared via registerType() if
they're selected using the shortcut names used in main.js (or render.js in trunk). Without
a list of those "laying around" a developer will likely submit a raw MIME Type vs. using the
shortcut name.

> More people know about "text/calendar" than will know to guess the shortcut name.
