Subject RE: Get all documents of a certain type.
Date Wed, 07 Nov 2012 02:16:50 GMT
I am getting there. My mapper looks like:


function(doc) {

    if(doc._id.indexOf('product-') == 0 {

        emit([doc.SKU], null);




With a key of 'by-sku'. How do I run this in Futon? In his case does
doc.type do the same thing as indexOf?

  The second was answered earlier.  It's the _all_docs query.


  The first would be a little be easier to answer if you could provide an
example document, but you'll have a mapper that looked something like



      function(doc) {

        if (doc.type === 'product') {

            emit(doc.sku, null);




  You would then save that as a design document and query query it.  If you
do this from futon, you can experiment interactively, and the click on the
little raw result tab thing in the top to get the URL you'd use from your
