Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1867) Plugins
Date Thu, 01 Aug 2013 19:47:49 GMT


Bob Ippolito commented on COUCHDB-1867:

As far as plugin installation goes, I think we should probably just put them in prefix/lib/couchdb/plugins/
(same location as the built-in support now) and have the convention to be to make this writeable
by the couchdb user. /tmp is obviously not a real solution :)

For distro-installed plugins, there could be another directory. Perhaps the boot script could
allow you to specify more than one plugin directory for this purpose? I don't have a lot of
insight into why linux distro packagers do what they do and how they want to do it.

I think the "plugin blacklist" support could use a lot of work too. The way that grep is done
is definitely not the right way to do it, and it should probably be in a file instead of (or
in addition to) an undocumented environment variable. To be honest I'd rather put as much
of this configuration stuff into Erlang and out of shell scripts as possible, but that would
be a separate issue than this.
