Subject [jira] Resolved: (COUCHDB-693) require function - add support for requiring plain html/xml files in addition to only javascript

Chris Anderson resolved COUCHDB-693.
------------------------------------

    Resolution: Fixed

Thanks for the report.

Sorry I didn't see it earlier. The proper way to do this in _show _list etc function (where
require is available, is to use 'this' which refers to the design document. So you can load
templates like:

function(doc, req) {
  var template = this.templates.entry;
  var Mustache = require("lib/mustache");
  return Mustache.to_html(template, doc);
}

For more examples see Sofa:

> It seems that for now every require function on the main.js it is created an empty exports
object which is returned after the call.

>             parent = resolved[1];
>             ...

> that one pre-populated object could be created:

> var require = function(name, parent) {
>             var resolved = resolveModule(name.split('/'), parent, ddoc);
>             var source = resolved[0]; 
>             var exports = {"source" : source};  /* <-- this would populate the exports
with an embedded source */
>             parent = resolved[1];
> --
> this done, users would be able to require plain plain html/xml files directly without
need to declare any javascript variable or exports...
> this is very nice for templating specifically because javascript support xml syntax without
any problem and also it's possible declare javascript variables inside the xml like <p>Hello
there, {name}</p>
> so it would be possible to require something like this
> templates/master.html -->
> <html>
>   <head>
>      <title>title</title>
>   </head>
>   <body>
>     <p>That's my content</p>
>   </body>
> </html>
>  ----
> and then simply require it using:
> var template = require("templates/master.html");
> send(template.source);
> ---
> I'm still trying to adjust it to be possible for user to just user plain text files without
quotes which would increase the possibilities for users to create their own view engines such
as HAML and SASS.
> In case the user is using just regular javascript he can easily overwrite the source
variable with exports.source ...
