Subject A Simple REST API
Date Tue, 12 Nov 2013 01:40:59 GMT
Hi !

I want to use CouchDB for a Ruby project. I downloaded CouchRest, but this
driver seems to be overkill for what I want : a simple REST API.

So, is it wrong to design my own driver (using tcp sockets) ? Like this :


class CouchDB

  def initialize(database, host = 'localhost', port = 5984)
    @database, @host, @port = database, host, port
  end

  def get(uri)
    if block_given?
      yield get(uri)
    else
      socket = TCPSocket.open(@host, @port)
      request = ""
      request << "GET /#{@database}/#{uri} HTTP/1.0\r\n"
      request << "\r\n"
      socket.write(request)
      response = socket.read
      socket.close
      # TODO : parsing json
    end
  end

end


It's just a dead simple draft, it works, but what are the drawbacks ? Do I
put myself in trouble ? (I don't have a deep tcp/http background and I fear
it's not that simple.)

Thank U for you help !

S├ębastien
