Subject CouchDB UUID suggestion
Date Fri, 09 Aug 2013 17:36:08 GMT
Hi All,
I have a suggestion regarding couchdb id generation. Please correct me if I
am wrong -
since couchdb ids are treated as strings (not as 128 bit nums) so why don't
you convert the base-16 UUID to base-36 alphanumeric string to save some
characters and make IDs shorter. I converted UUID to base-36 in my API and
get 13 byte string instead of a 32byte UUID string
