Subject Re: Line Breaks in JSON Causing Issue With jQuery
Date Wed, 10 Nov 2010 20:44:53 GMT
For anyone else coming across this thread, I enabled JSONP in my ini file
and restarted CouchDB, did a bunch of experimentation, and finally hit on
what works (for me anyway):

var dbURL = "
$.getJSON(dbURL, null, function(data) { alert(data.rows[0].value.whatever);

If the alert looks right (and use Firebug to check your full response of
course), then you should be in good shape.

Firebug still complains in some cases (I tried a ton of iterations of things
so I'd have to retrace my steps to see where exactly this occurs) because of
the line breaks, but that seems to be a red herring.

This is CouchDB 1.0.1 on Windows Server if that makes a difference to

Thanks for the help!
