Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1894) Add experimental NodeJS query server
Date Thu, 26 Sep 2013 02:27:02 GMT


Joan Touzet commented on COUCHDB-1894:

[~jhs] If the sandbox allows access to any additional JS functionality, it does - a view server
that fulfills the contract as currently specified does not allow execution of arbitrary code,
and is explicitly sandboxed to prevent such things as additional network code, etc. 

I don't know if the mentioned sandbox.js is sufficient to do that, but if it does not explicitly
restrict view code to the same degree as couchjs does, it is outside the contract and should
not be shipped by this project.

> Let’s clean up and merge Jason Smith’s Node.js query server into ASF land and ship
it as opt-in and experimental.
> I’ve prepared a branch that does the following:
>  - remove fancy extra features like app server handlers and the visual debugger support
for now
>  - make it a drop-in replacement for couchjs
>  - bundle the code in src/couchjs-node
>  - add a new query server language “nodejs” that people can use
>  - include sandbox.js from (not hooked up
> The query server is not installed by default and users can install them in two ways:
> 1. from source:
>     $ cd src/couchjs-node
>     $ npm link
> 2. from NPM:
>     $ npm install couchjs # add @1.x.x for once the module mirrors CouchDB version numbers
for forward compat)
> And then they can uncomment and update the [query_server] line in local.ini.

> Open work items on the view server:
>  - make it work with CLI tests
>  - fix remaining test cases in web test runner
>  - hook up sandbox.js from
