Subject [jira] [Updated] (COUCHDB-2227) Feature request: _all_docs?exclude_ddocs=true
Date Fri, 18 Apr 2014 18:23:19 GMT


Joan Touzet updated COUCHDB-2227:

    Component/s: HTTP Interface
       Priority: Minor  (was: Major)
    Skill Level: Regular Contributors Level (Easy to Medium)

I'm not sure how common using capital letters is in document IDs - this is actually the first
time I've seen them. It's not a completely unreasonable request, though I'm not sure how simple
of an implementation it would be.

Given we tend to use {{include_*}} parameters, having {{include_ddocs}} default to {{true}}
and specifying {{include_ddocs=false}} would be more appropriate.

> Design docs are included in {{\_all_docs}} results, which is by design (hyuk hyuk). 
However, this can be surprising and unwanted behavior for new users, and plus, sometimes it's
tricky to exclude them, e.g. if your docids come both before and after the {{_}} character:
> {code:javascript}
> {"total_rows":6,"offset":0,"rows":[
> {"id":"Bar","key":"Bar","value":{"rev":"1-967a00dff5e02add41819138abb3284d"}},
> {"id":"Foo","key":"Foo","value":{"rev":"1-967a00dff5e02add41819138abb3284d"}},
> {"id":"_design/temp","key":"_design/temp","value":{"rev":"1-ee20bd300ce7ffa18e9ef1144fa50fd4"}},
> {"id":"_design/temp2","key":"_design/temp2","value":{"rev":"1-9b626494fef9a884a383345540c29e97"}},
> {"id":"bar","key":"bar","value":{"rev":"1-967a00dff5e02add41819138abb3284d"}},
> {"id":"foo","key":"foo","value":{"rev":"1-967a00dff5e02add41819138abb3284d"}}
> ]}
> {code}
> What I would like is a query param like {{exclude_ddocs}}, which defaults to false and
would only return non-design documents, but otherwise function exactly the same.  What {{offset}}
and {{total_rows}} would do in this case is up to you.
> Workaround: The best workaround is to do two separate queries, one with the parameters
{{endkey=%22_design/%22}} and the other with {{startkey=%22_design0%22}}. But this is not
particularly elegant.
