Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1954) Clarify Futon/Fauxton transition
Date Wed, 11 Dec 2013 13:04:09 GMT


Benoit Chesneau commented on COUCHDB-1954:

about the 

1. I am not sure/. Imo if we go to a major release, we could return a 404 pages describing
where to find such script. Eventually I could add in erica a macro that replace such links.

Slightly off-topic but I disagree with [~kxepal] here. Erica can and will be used for more.
Providing its own way to extend, inherit, plug app. Doing it differently from a simple dependency
system that's all. But he's right one one point. AT the beginning and its simples form erica/couchapp
are just tool to create and edit docs/ddoc from the file system.

2. What about simply put the HTTP API to `/couchdb` and the UI to `/ui` or `/` . So you keep
the API separated from any extensions you can add later or sooner. I would keep the `/` alone
so e can finally add this CAPABILITY system we talk sometimes ago. (a way to discover links,
installed resources, version of the API supported) ... Also I would start to version the API.

3. Maybe we could have a way to redirect the obvious and return a detailled 404 for the others?

> At some point Fauxton will replace Futon. There are a few questions that we should clarify
before we get there:
> 1. what happens to resources like jquery.js and jquery.couch.js that are currently in
well-known places where CouchApps depend on them?
> 2. there are several other tickets regarding serving a human readable HTML page on `/`
if the client is clearly a browser. (so people don’t have to type the `/_utils` manually,
how does that play into rolling out Fauxton?
> 3. cool URLs don’t change: what happens to links into Futon that no longer work in
Fauxton that might be coming in from the docs and other tutorials, including people’s in-house
