Subject [jira] [Reopened] (COUCHDB-1042) make libcurl a soft (optional) dependency
Date Sat, 03 Dec 2011 00:07:41 GMT


Randall Leeds reopened COUCHDB-1042:

    Skill Level: New Contributors Level (Easy)
       Assignee: Randall Leeds

I think now that the js tests run with make check something is needed here. We should issue
a warning that these tests won't be run when the dependency isn't satisfied, and then not
run them.

> CouchDB currently uses libcurl only in couchjs to expose HTTP client functions to the
JavaScript environment. This functionality is used by the JavaScript unit tests. For idempotent
views it is discouraged to perform I/O in a view function. Therefore, I propose that libcurl
be made an optional dependency, automatically detected at build time, and a flag added to
couchjs so it can be explicitly enabled in the unit tests (but disabled, by default, for the
query server).
