Subject Re: Tree like structures in CouchDB
Date Fri, 22 Feb 2013 05:48:38 GMT
another way (useless in your case) is to keep messages as separate
docs, and keep a cache of the structure of the tree (id,(id,id)...)) as
another doc.
if u have the notion of closed/frozen threads, that might be of use.
actualy that cache can be a dict:
 { parent_id: [ list of children_id ] }
