Bob Ippolito commented on COUCHDB-1867:
---------------------------------------

For reference, this is what I have been testing with: https://github.com/etrepum/couchperuser

To build it, just make sure (the right) couch-config is on the PATH, or set ERL_LIBS appropriately
before calling rebar compile. You can then symlink the couchperuser dir into $PREFIX/lib/couchdb/plugins
(or tmp/plugins when using make dev).

Using a zip file instead of tgz would be a bit more natural for plugin distribution. Erlang
can actually work with code that's in zip files (this is how rebar works, for example. try
unzip -l `which rebar`). See "Loading Code from Archive Files" at http://www.erlang.org/doc/man/code.html#id102475
for some implementation details of how ".ez" archives work. Loading configuration from these
would be a little more complicated but not impossible (couch_config could recognize .ez files
and pull priv/default.d/*.ini from them with zip:foldl/3). Note that this probably isn't a
good idea for all plugins, since I assume that it will make sense to ship them with a bunch
of data files in the future (e.g. html/js for admin tools).
