Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1931) documentation on shows and lists in misleading
Date Fri, 15 Nov 2013 11:15:20 GMT


Benoit Chesneau commented on COUCHDB-1931:

Experience? You mean the performance issue? Again I don't see why it should be a reason against
their use. It's more an issue that we should solve. 

Also we have the same performance issue when indexing the views. Should we deprecate them?
Or rather solve the performance issue? And this performance issue is more problematic for
the views since while lists are handled in //, view indexation is serialised.

> The doc says for the shows:
> {quote}
> Show functions are used to represent documents in various formats, commonly as HTML page
with nicer formatting. They can also be used to run server-side functions without requiring
a pre-existing document.
> {quote}
> and later for the lists:
> {quote}
> While Show functions are used to customize document presentation, List functions are
used for same purpose, but against View functions results.
> {quote}
> We shouldn't speak of rendering or not only. Shows are about transforming the results
depending on the parameters you pass on the URL. Rendering is just one of the possibilities
due to the ability of transforming and editing the result(s). 
> We should make it more clear.
