Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1867) Plugins
Date Sat, 17 Aug 2013 13:22:48 GMT


Jason Smith commented on COUCHDB-1867:

The blacklist exists so you can specify which plugins to load at run time rather than at build

In other words, simply placing a plugin in that directory activates the plugin; but what if
you want to disable the plugin? Worse, what if you run multiple instances of CouchDB on the
same machine, from the same installation?

Iris Couch has a plugin, cgi_couchdb, where you can put CGI scripts in your design document,
and run arbitrary CGI applications in CouchDB. Obviously that is only enabled for trusted

If there was a way to activate/deactivate plugins from the config, I would be happy to see
the blacklist go. Mostly I implemented it this way because my Bash-fu was stronger than my
Erlang-fu at the time.
