Subject Re: view on frequently updated value (active_at timestamp)
Date Sat, 28 May 2011 18:40:09 GMT

I just played with the update handler. It still rewrites the whole
document. It takes too much time since I have to update the document on
user activity.

Separating the data into linked (joined) documents makes impossible to
have multiple key views.

Is there a solution?
