Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1397) Function expressions, evals in SpiderMonkey
Date Sat, 04 Feb 2012 11:57:54 GMT


Marcello Nuccio commented on COUCHDB-1397:


I've found that, using valid Javascript in map/reduce, eases development for me, because I
can use standard tools (uglifyjs, jshint, ...) without extra work.

Moreover, I would also remove all global functions and inject them:

    function sampleMap(doc, view) {
      view.emit(doc._id, null);

because this makes unit testing much more easier than now.

Ease of development and ease of testing it's much more relaxing for me, than the possibility
to use anonymous functions.

> New SpiderMonkey releases do not eval() a sole anonymous function expression. That is
not a valid JavaScript statement, and so it is not a valid JavaScript script.
> COUCHDB-1302 addressed this for 1.1 and the 1.1.x branch. This ticket is for 1.2. (Sorry
to spam COUCHDB-1302. I saw "Unassigned" and read "Unresolved.")
