Subject [jira] [Reopened] (COUCHDB-1934) jquery.couch status
Date Thu, 28 Nov 2013 12:05:36 GMT


Alexander Shorin reopened COUCHDB-1934:

Hm, seems like I was in rush when closed the issue, getting it back.

> My -1 on the mailing list was conditional on hearing "no good reasons to remove it".

Sorry, seems like I miss them. In my pro/con list there is the next:

Reasons to keep it:
- Compatibility with existed couchapps // yes, I know how this sounds like, but still
- Good bootstrap platform for new couchapps (especially with Fauxton assets and libs)
- There is no alternative out of box remains, unless you'll hack through Fauxton api
- CouchDB is "A Database for the Web" (as our site says) and with client-out-of-the-box it
would be just more awesome

Reasons to remove it:
- Not been actively maintaining
- The main reason why it was out-of-box was Futon
- And it remains unused in post-Futon era
- It's quite complex project that may evolve as standalone one
- Yet another point to keep compatibility with the rest of the world (if we're changing HTTP
API we SHOULD change jquery.couch too)
- If you cares about your couchapp portablity, you will not use builtin js libs, but your
own which you ship in attachments since this safes you from compatibility/availability issues.

Anything else?

> plus issues with having them assumed to be available, couch instances that disable futon
shouldnt suddenly break applications based on couch because of a broken dependancy

Good point. That is the main reason to have it in ddoc attachments since in this case you
would be saved from disabled futon and different versions issues.

>             Project: CouchDB
>          Issue Type: Question
>            Reporter: Alexander Shorin
> 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?
