Subject Re: Remove field from view
Date Tue, 16 Aug 2011 12:32:22 GMT
I might be thinking of this in the wrong way.

I already have the doc and rev id. I'm trying to get the doc without c as c
has quite a lot of data. Which isnt required till much later and even then
only a few will be needed.

The whole database without c is about 25mb. With c its 2 gb.

I dont want to seperate c from the other data.

Any thoughts?

You can omit emitting `c` in the view, but all that will mean that it will
not be included in the view itself (either as its key or its value), but it
will still exist in the underlying documents.

just use `include_docs=true` parameter to query the document itself along
with the view.
