Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1934) jquery.couch status
Date Thu, 28 Nov 2013 08:43:37 GMT


Garren Smith commented on COUCHDB-1934:

I would like to quickly clarify how Fauxton uses Backbone to interact with Couchdb. Because
Couchdb is just an http api, we use standard backbone, we do not have a Couchdb api layer
on top of Backbone. So we are definitely not advocating that Backbone replace jquery.couch.

When I said earlier that we should deprecate jquery.couch I didn't realise how difficult a
move this would be as I didn't take into account that people used it in their own custom couchapps
on top of Couchdb. I think if we can find someone to maintain it then we should leave it in.
Its a very simple js interface into Couchdb and works reasonably well until there is a better
alternative. Fauxton is not that alternative as its a relatively large web application framework
and not a small js lib to interact with Couchdb.

> When [~nslater] had proposed to include [jquery.couch.js docs|]
into official CouchDB one I recall old good time when we had discussed Futon.Next project.
> Suddenly, it was out of official mailing lists, so no references are available, but [~garren],
[~dch], [~bigbluehat] and [~ryanramage] were there and our discussion was around jquery vs
backbone vs pouchdb. Backbone won.
> Nowdays, we have Fauxton which doesn't used jquery.couch and based on Backbone. So it
seems if we'll replace Futon with him this client library would be left orphan.
> So that's the question: what is the status of jquery.couch.js? Is it still actual and
supported or going to be deprecated?
