Subject [GitHub] couchdb pull request: Implement bulk deletion for all-docs-listing
Date Wed, 21 May 2014 23:29:02 GMT
Github user kxepal commented on the pull request:
    Wow! You really handled all of these, even some wishes! (: I didn't expect that you handle
them all since I put them just to not forget about how it would be possible to improve the
bulk deletion - I had to noted that /:
    About the changes: all cool! Everything works! \o/ 
    Just two little moments:
    1. in case of deletion failure (due to lack of permission or validation function) Fauxton
says: `Failed to destroy: foobarbaz`.  May be use "deleted" term instead of "destroy"? It's
common and sounds more recoverable as deletion is. Sorry, didn't have a chance to test this
on first review because of other bugs.
    2. document selection by click on the row works, but not above and under checkbox space:
    ![some doc](
    On image above it showed: red box is the dead zone when click doesn't selects the doc,
green boxes are where it does. Since "red zone" is bigger than green ones, it's really sweet
spot for the click. Firefox 29 and Chromium 35, all on linux.
    >> is it possible to preserve selection for browser history navigation?
    > The was saving the state in a sessionStorage in the first version, but it introduced
bugs and I removed it. Maybe a thing for a second iteration, it's possible to add this later
with the current code...
    No problem. Actually, I was curious is it even possible. +1 for later.
    >> How about to show there the list of selected doc ids?"
    > I like the idea and I would use a real, fancy dialog for that and not an alert box,
but this would be another feature with some more work. I really like the idea, but I want
to ship this code as soon as possible: to avoid merge conflicts and that people can make use
of the feature so I try to keep the scope of the ticket small. With a real div as box we could
also add a scrollbar and stuff like this, so we wouldn't even have to limit it to 50 items.
    +1. This feature really requires some extra care and worth another PR.
    >> undo button
    >Same for the undo button, I like the idea, but a undo for already bulk deleted docs
is not in the scope of this issue for me (if I understand the idea right?). Or do you mean
the possibility to unselect all boxes with a button? - I could add one for unselecting all
items very fast.
    No, it's about undoing deletion operation. Say, you'd selected some docs, click on delete
all button and in the next second figure out that you done wrong things. The idea is the same
as in gmail: undo deletion, undo sent, allowing to undo any operation which causes the major
changes in the next few seconds before they'll really get applied. Not much critical, but
useful feature.  Again, if do this right, I believe that will come in result as new Fauxton
module which covers a lot of other cases too (like undo config option deletion and more).

If your project is set up for it, you can reply to this email and have your
reply appear on GitHub as well. If your project does not have this feature
enabled and wishes so, or if the feature is enabled but not working, please
contact infrastructure at or file a JIRA ticket
with INFRA.
