We've launched user accounts at EveryBlock , and we faced the interesting problem of needing to cache entire pages except for the "You're logged in as [username] " bit at the top of the page. For example, the Chicago homepage takes a nontrivial amount of time to generate and doesn't change often -- which means we want to cache it -- but at the same time, we need to display the dynamic bit in the upper right: One solution would be to pull in the username info dynamically via Ajax.
Last week I wrote an article called Why CouchDB Sucks , which many people correctly said should have been called "What CouchDB Sucks at Doing". Nearly everyone pointed out that it was not designed to do the things that I was mentioning in the article. This time around, I'd like to focus on some of the features about CouchDB that I think absolutely rock.
Ahhh, Django : my favorite web framework. And CouchDB : my favorite new database technology. How can I pair these two awesomes together to make an awesome-er? One of the features that I would like to add to this site when it's time for an upgrade is a lifestream. It seems like everyone is doing it these days (isn't this great logic!), so I probably should too.
