Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1075) Circular require's in CommonJS modules
Date Tue, 03 May 2011 04:34:03 GMT


Caolan McMahon commented on COUCHDB-1075:

Just FYI, this patch makes a fairly normal Kanso ( app respond around 10x
faster on the initial request (the one rendered by CouchDB). Removing the  per-request limitation
by commenting out the line "Couch.module_cache = {};" from State.reset you gain another 10x
speed increase on-top of the previous for all subsequent requests.

I think the small risks of users abusing the module_cache for storing state between requests
(which you might argue is at their own risk) are by far outweighed by the performance increases
for serious couchapps.

> Having a CommonJS module A which requires B, when B also requires A causes the stack
to fill up with require calls. A prerequisite for this fix is the caching of modules, even
if it is only on a per-request basis.
