Subject Replication rollback
Date Mon, 23 Jun 2014 12:35:04 GMT
Hi, I posted a message on SO, but here is probably a better place. Here's my question regarding
handling replication.
I want to be able to prevent a 'push' (or replication) to the central CouchDB instance from
a user's local instance (where there are many users) if there are any conflicts - essentially
copying the functionality from something like Git or Mercurial, where users have to resolve
conflicts on their local copy before pushing to the central server (so the server can remain
As far as I can see, there are two options; preventing a user from committing if there are
conflicts (although I can't see any way to do this without actually completing the replication),
or completing the replication, seeing if there are any conflicts, and then deleting the pushed
replication (and the associated documents) if there are conflicts (though this could also
result in undesirable behaviour if a pull is completed before the documents are re-deleted,
as well as being a bit inefficient).
I would like a replication to roll back if there is a conflict, and to inform me that a conflict
has occurred (I don't care about the nature of the conflict, because then I can initiate a
pull request replication to replicate the central db on the local db).
Thanks, Ian.
