Subject Passing permanent changing arguments to a view?
Date Wed, 19 Feb 2014 00:24:19 GMT

[Introduction] //skip if you want
My Name is Ben, I'm 34 years old from Germany. I'm developing Apps for iOS
and Ruby Backends.

I'm new to couchDB, did some tutorials and really enjoyed working with
But now I'm stuck.

I stored locations (doc) to my couchDB.

e. g.:
name: "Location A",
latitude: 52.521156,
longitude: 13.396886

Because it's a mobile app, I only want to get docs within a radius of 5km.
But I really don't know how to query this.

Is there a possibility to pass some arguments to a view?
Something like this:

function(doc) {
if (doc.longitude > minLong
&& doc.longitude < maxLong
&& doc.latitude > minLat
&& doc.latitude < maxLat)
emit(, null);

Or should every user create and update his own view?

Thank you very much,
