Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1183) Shouldn't coffee-script.js be available in non-compressed form ?
Date Thu, 02 Jun 2011 09:50:47 GMT


Jan Lehnardt commented on COUCHDB-1183:

The file is copied verbatim from the CoffeeScript repository (

I don't think compress at build time is a good idea since it adds the coffee script build
dependencies on top of our dependencies.

I'd be happy to maintain the uncompressed version, but it is not a single file in the CoffeeScript
repository. But I agree with your concerns about relying on code in a third part repository,
so I would propose to keep a full source copy of the versions we bundle in

> actually coffee-script.js is provided in its compressed form in share/server. While the
compression may be needed this is the only file provided like this. Also I think it's better
to provide all sources from which CouchDB depends (and it may be an Apache concern too) so
we don't rely on any third party to get full sources. 
> What I propose is to make it available uncompressed, and at build compress it. While
we are here we could probably do that or other too. Other solution may be to provide both
format (compressed and uncompressed) in the archive and sources. Thoughts?
