Johnny Weng Luu commented on COUCHDB-1219:

Can't I use the "Wish" type? I don't find a mailing list good for feature suggestions. They
just get lost.

>            Priority: Minor
> With CouchDB the application server landscape has changed. The database can now handle
almost all logic that is data related, eg. validation, updating, formatting etc.
> It has a HTTP server for incoming requests but one thing I find missing is a HTTP client
that can push data to other servers.
> What I have to do right now for sending data to an external service is to setup a (node.js)
server that listens on the _changes feed.
> When there is a document meant for being delivered through email, node.js will send a
HTTP request to the (sendgrid) email service.
> I think it would make sense if CouchDB could make HTTP requests on document changes,
meaning we can eliminate that extra HTTP client layer just for sending the data.
> Why only have a HTTP server for data but not a HTTP client for data.
> I think this would make CouchDB even more suitable for couchapps.
> Now the app can be offline. We send an email and it will be sent by couchdb when Internet
connectivity is there.
> Also now the whole app can be replicated and every couchdb instance can make it's own
HTTP requests and we no longer have to have a node.js server just to support basic HTTP requests.
