Subject Re: Erlang Api for Couchdb
Date Wed, 03 Sep 2008 16:38:10 GMT
The supported Erlang Apis will simply be to document a core set of the  
internal APIs. These documented apis will, generally speaking, always  
be available and behave the same in future releases of CouchDB.  
Anything not in the API will change freely between revisions and  
shouldn't be used.

But things are still in flux, we just last week change the core json  
term format and I'm anticipating some refactoring changes in the view  
code too. When we get closer to 1.0 we'll start documenting and  
locking down the apis. Until then, you can use the stuff in  
couch_httpd to give you an idea what the apis will be.
