Subject Re: Comments in design doucment
Date Fri, 24 Feb 2012 23:12:48 GMT
Hi Ian,
i don't get the point.
i comment my map / reduce functions just like i comment all my other
code in ohrer places, like this:

//this is my map function to map all docs
function(doc) {
  //i jost emit every doc
  emit(null, doc);

which results in a valid json like this:

   "_id": "_design/delme",
   "_rev": "1-bed099dd4d01031ac4c177f5d7acf372",
   "language": "javascript",
   "views": {
       "delme": {
           "map": "//this is my map function to map all
docs\nfunction(doc) {\n  //i jost emit every doc\n  emit(null,

in my opinion thats the right way, because i'am commenting the code,
not the data..
