List changes to a database.

Description

Of course it doesn't make much sense to use certain options in _changes. For example, using feed=longpoll or continuous doesn't make much sense within R itself.

Usage

db_changes(cushion, dbname, descending = NULL, startkey = NULL,
  endkey = NULL, since = NULL, limit = NULL, include_docs = NULL,
  feed = "normal", heartbeat = NULL, filter = NULL, as = "list", ...)

limit

Number document IDs to return. (numeric)

include_docs

feed

Select the type of feed. One of normal, longpoll, or continuous. See description. (character)

heartbeat

Period in milliseconds after which an empty line is sent in the results. Only applicable for longpoll or continuous feeds. Overrides any timeout to keep the feed alive indefinitely. (numeric (milliseconds))
