Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-912) Anonymous Access to Design Docs on private DB's
Date Tue, 16 Nov 2010 14:24:59 GMT


Dale Harvey commented on COUCHDB-912:

It only allows attachments to design docs, but yeh its not a solution I particularly like

a flag on the design doc I would much prefer, Its what I mentioned,
forgot who pointed me towards implementing it as a config option but I figured I would do
it quickly just so I could understand the implications.Hinnerk Haardts point out that with
a flag on the design doc you can have seperate login / business logic design docs which would
work fine.

is reading the database on every request to a design document ok / anyway to cache it nicely?

I dont want this particular patch to go in, I just wanted to post it to mark it as a priority
because without it private couchapps are very very crippled.

> Right now people need to go through futon in order to login to couchapps running on private
databases, this is a pretty big limitation on the type of couchapps that can be built
> Propose adding the ability for users to flag the design docs as readable for anonymous
users, could be implemented though an attribute on the design doc?
