Subject [jira] [Closed] (COUCHDB-1) MIME types for attachments
Date Tue, 21 Feb 2012 21:32:48 GMT


Sam Bisbee closed COUCHDB-1.

Been resolved for a long time and CouchDB handles Content-Type for attachments just fine.

>            Priority: Minor
> There is AFAICT currently no standard way to associate a MIME type with
> attachments. This is needed for CouchDB to be able to serve the attachment
> with the correct Content-Type header.
> There's already a type field in the attachment JSON structure, which I'd
> suggest should be renamed to encoding, as it's intended to determine how
> the content has been encoded in the JSON data (for example "base64"). With
> that out of the way, the type field should contain the MIME type. When an
> attachment is added, the client should be able to specify the MIME type
> using this field, but CouchDB could use a sane default
> ("application/octet-stream") if the field is missing.
