=======================

Apache CouchDB provides 'convenience binary' Docker images through
Docker Hub at ``apache/couchdb``. The following tags are available:
Docker Hub at ``apache/couchdb``. This is our upstream release; it
is usually mirrored downstream at Docker's top-level ``couchdb``
as well.

* ``latest``, ``3``, ``3.0``, ``3.0.0``: CouchDB 3.0.0, single node
* ``2``, ``2.3``, ``2.3.1``: CouchDB 2.3.1, single node
* ``1``, ``1.7``, ``1.7.2``: CouchDB 1.7.2
* ``1-couchperuser``, ``1.7-couchperuser``, ``1.7.2-couchperuser``: CouchDB
1.7.2 with couchperuser plugin
At least these tags are always available on the image:

These images are built using Debian 9 (stretch), expose CouchDB on port
``5984`` of the container, run everything as user ``couchdb``, and support
use of a Docker volume for data at ``/opt/couchdb/data``.
* ``latest`` - always the latest
* ``3``: always the latest 3.x version
* ``2``: always the latest 2.x version
* ``1``, ``1.7``, ``1.7.2``: CouchDB 1.7.2 (convenience only; no longer supported)
* ``1-couchperuser``, ``1.7-couchperuser``, ``1.7.2-couchperuser``: CouchDB
1.7.2 with couchperuser plugin (convenience only; no longer supported)

Note that you can also use the ``NODENAME`` environment variable to set the
name of the CouchDB node inside the container.
These images expose CouchDB on port ``5984`` of the container, run everything
as user ``couchdb`` (uid ``5984``), and support use of a Docker volume for data
at ``/opt/couchdb/data``.

**Your installation is not complete. Be sure to complete the**
