Subject Re: CouchDB: Most recently added document that is NOT a design document
Date Tue, 07 Jan 2014 00:16:10 GMT
It might depend on your definition of "added document". If `PUT
/db/docid` and `POST /db` are the only ways to "add", then do what Bob
said and stop at the first non-design document with a seq number of 1.
It starts getting tricky if you also include in your definition
documents that are created by replication, and I'm not sure how to
handle that.
