Subject Re: Getting the value of a key in a single doc(Does this require a view)
Date Sat, 18 Dec 2010 17:13:53 GMT
Speed is important in the case of this request so I guess a view is the way
to go.

I have a very simple 'status' key for all my docs

'status': 'IDLE' or 'status':'RUNNING'

I just want to get a quick grab of the status instead of the entire doc, so
I wasn't sure if a view or show was better.

Would it be best to just use a startkey_docid and endkey_docid as the same
value so that my view would be limited to one doc result?  Just looking for
the best practice on returning the one doc value.
