apache-couchdb  2.3.1
About: Apache CouchDB is a document-oriented database that can be queried and indexed in a MapReduce fashion using JavaScript. A so-called NoSQL-DB written in Erlang.
  Fossies Dox: apache-couchdb-2.3.1.tar.gz  ("inofficial" and yet experimental doxygen-generated source code documentation)  

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies apache-couchdb-2.3.1.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

Verifying your Installation

Run a basic test suite for CouchDB by browsing here:

http://127.0.0.1:5984/_utils/#verifyinstall

Getting started with developing

For more detail, read the README-DEV.rst file in this directory.

Basically you just have to install the needed dependencies which are documented in the install docs and then run ./configure && make.

You don't need to run make install after compiling, just use ./dev/run to spin up three nodes. You can add haproxy as a caching layer in front of this cluster by running ./dev/run --with-haproxy --haproxy=/path/to/haproxy . You will now have a local cluster listening on port 5984.

For Fauxton developers fixing the admin-party does not work via the button in Fauxton. To fix the admin party you have to run ./dev/run with the admin flag, e.g. ./dev/run --admin=username:password. If you want to have an admin-party, just omit the flag.
