Subject Re: Help With map function
Date Wed, 23 Feb 2011 02:10:31 GMT

Thanks for answer. As far as i know i can use complex keys (according to couch wiki) my problem
was that I didn't understand how to do it. Now my problem is that i can't find way to do "curl\"cat1\" from my ruby
app. I'm planing to use couchrest_model and if i understand coretly when i add "view_by :category"
to my class I can use Item.find_by_category('cat1').

Correct me if I'm wrong. So I'd create a view where the index has item, brand and category
and then you can just include a key set for each grouping you want in the post body.

solve your problem.
