1 ## fabric
2
3 Fabric is a collection of proxy functions for [CouchDB][1] operations in a cluster. These functions are used in [BigCouch][2] as the remote procedure endpoints on each of the cluster nodes.
4
5 For example, creating a database is a straightforward task in standalone CouchDB, but for BigCouch, each node that will store a shard/partition for the database needs to receive and execute a fabric function. The node handling the request also needs to compile the results from each of the nodes and respond accordingly to the client.

7 Fabric is used in conjunction with 'Rexi' which is also an application within BigCouch.
