minimalistic CouchBase client for node.js

branch: master
README.md

baseview

deprecated

baseview is no longer required since the view functionality is build in the latest couchnode client.

baseview is a minimalistic CouchBase client for node.js based on the minimalistic CouchDB driver nano.

CouchBase provides view data as JSON, which can be accessed and streamed with this client. To store and retrieve single documents/key-value pairs, the memcached-library is required.

usage

  baseview = require('baseview')('http://127.0.0.1:8092')
  or
  baseview = require('baseview')({url: 'http://127.0.0.1:8092', bucket: 'my_bucket'})
  ...

  // retrieve data from a view
  baseview.view('design_doc', 'view_name', function(error, data) {
    console.log(error, data);
  });

  // retrieve data from a spatial index with bounding box.
  // see 'sparta' for bbox calculations
  baseview.spatial('geo', 'points', {bbox: bbox}, function(error, points) {
    console.log(error, points);
  });

  //adding a design document
  baseview.setDesign('design_doc', {
     'names': {
        'map': "function(doc){if(doc.name){emit(doc.name);}}"
      },
      'rating': {
        'map': "function(doc){if(doc.name && doc.rating){emit(doc.rating);}}"
      }
    },
    function(err, res){
      // handle error http://www.couchbase.com/docs/couchbase-manual-2.0/couchbase-views-designdoc-api-storing.html
    }
  );

  // retrieve a design document
  baseview.getDesign('design_doc', function(err,res) {
    // http://www.couchbase.com/docs/couchbase-manual-2.0/couchbase-views-designdoc-api-retrieving.html
  });

  // delete a design document
  baseview.deleteDesign('design_doc', function(err, res) {
    // handle error http://www.couchbase.com/docs/couchbase-manual-2.0/couchbase-views-designdoc-api-deleting.html
  });

To create a geographical bounding box (bbox), have a look at sparta, a small library for geo calculations.

example with socket.io

  io.sockets.on('connection', function (socket) {
    baseview.view('feed', 'images', function(error, data) {
      socket.emit('image_feed', data.rows);
    });
  });
