Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-2214) Dashboard as main page
Date Wed, 18 Mar 2015 17:34:38 GMT


Nishani  commented on COUCHDB-2214:

I followed the instructions given and was able to build CouchDB 2 and Fauxton. I also followed
other threads regarding CouchDB for installation. But I got the following error message,
Join nodes into cluster... ('Failed to join node1 into cluster', 'Object Not Found')
when trying to run.

Then I referred [1] and the same issue had been solved for Windows. After successfully following
the solution steps I managed to run it with no errors 
Join nodes into cluster... ok
Developers cluster is set up at 

Currently I'm going through the REST API. 

To collect more ideas about the feature list I'm hoping to include on the dashboard, I will
put a message to dev-mail list asking community requirements and ideas.

Best Regards,

> Currently, the main page of Fauxton is list of all databases on server. While this representation
is traditional and legacy from Futon, it would be awesome to see there some dashboard of summary
> For instance, you're logged as admin. What Fauxton may show you on there?
> - Recently visited databases (COUCHDB-2112)
> - Active replications (+ active_tasks)
> - Some valuable stats like 500 / 401 HTTP errors
> - Recent log messages
> - Quick links for users / replicator databases, create new user/admin
> - Some field for alert message like: Fix the admin party. Warning! You have the admin
party and your CouchDB is accessible not only from localhost. And some other recommendations
(like raise max_open_databases in case if you have a lot of dbs and stats tells that you're
getting closer to this limit), tip of the day etc.
> As for regular user there could be showed:
> - Recently visited databases
> - Link to his profile (doc in _users db)
> (whatelse may be useful for regular users?)
> In other words, it would be awesome to have nicer welcome page with useful information
as summary from other sources.
