Subject Version 1.4 features: Plugin system
Date Wed, 11 Sep 2013 13:17:16 GMT
Hi everyone,

In version 1.4, the feature that excites me the most is the plugin system. I see it as a way
to foster innovation on CouchDB, letting people test unstable features, without having to
weaken the core of CouchDB.

However, I haven't found much on the Web about what can be done exactly as a plugin, and how
difficult it is to turn a "feature hidden in some developer’s git repository" into a plugin.

As an example of a long forgotten (yet needed) feature, let's take the LDAP authentication
handler (https://github.com/chao/couchdb/commits/ldap_auth). Could it be turned into a plugin?
Would it be easy?


Regards,

Aurélien
