Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1643) Switch to V8
Date Tue, 15 Jan 2013 19:18:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1643?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13554179#comment-13554179

Jason Smith commented on COUCHDB-1643:
--------------------------------------

For what it's worth, I wrote a 100% Node.js view server. It's about 200 lines of JavaScript.

https://github.com/iriscouch/couchjs

Actually it just implements `couchjs`. It runs the same "main.js" view server as the SpiderMonkey
one. Only a tiny fraction of the unit tests fail (mostly E4X stuff).

It's quick and dirty. But it makes the point. Node.js is good bang-for-buck. What would "V8"
bring to the table?

> I’d like to propose that we switch to the V8 JavaScript engine to mitigate the various
issues we have with SpiderMonkey.
> This ticket acts as the meta-issue where we can discuss whether we all agree and what
needs doing. individual tasks then can get their own tickets.
