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


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.

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.

needs doing. individual tasks then can get their own tickets.
