Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1012) Utility to help plugin developers manage paths
Date Thu, 25 Aug 2011 13:34:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1012?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13091001#comment-13091001
] 

Benoit Chesneau commented on COUCHDB-1012:
------------------------------------------

it's not called couch-config_dev. 2 files are created to handle dev mode (can be removed).
Sorry should have been put the example with couch-config. Code is saying the truth though.


It's not called log-dir because what we really have is a log file, but can be log dir those
that won't give the name of the log file. Is this the way to follow?

I find it useful to have couchdb bin path but can be removed as well. All other options are
needed though. adding a note is a good idea, what would be the text?

> Developers may want to write plugins (like GeoCouch) for CouchDB. Many hooks in the configuration
system allow loading arbitrary Erlang modules to handle various internal tasks, but currently
there is no straightforward and portable way for developers of these plugins to discover the
location of the CouchDB library files.
> Two options that have been proposed are to use pkg-config or install a separate script
that could be invoked (e.g. as couch-config --erl-libs) to discover important CouchDB installation
paths.
> As far as I know the loudest argument against pkg-config is lack of support for Windows.
