Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1397) Function expressions, evals in SpiderMonkey
Date Sat, 04 Feb 2012 01:23:53 GMT


Jason Smith commented on COUCHDB-1397:

@Paul, good points.

So, we disagree on where to make the trade-off. That's fine. I yield to you and the community
if that is its consensus. (Is it?)

CouchDB should support the ubiquitous, nice-looking, and relaxing "invalid" style even if
that means "(" + ")". But it should *not* support helper function people. Obviously that is
just IMO.

But if CouchDB *does* change and we *do* start writing valid statements/programs in our ddocs,
Max's suggestion of the standard--CommonJS--is clearly best.

> 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.")
