A smart client for couchbase in go

This is a unoffical version of a Couchbase Golang client. If you are looking for the Offical Couchbase Golang client please see [CB-go])[].

This is an evolving package, but does provide a useful interface to a couchbase server including all of the pool/bucket discovery features, compatible key distribution with other clients, and vbucket motion awareness so application can continue to operate during rebalances.

It also supports view querying with source node randomization so you don't bang on all one node to do all the work.


go get


c, err := couchbase.Connect("")
if err != nil {
	log.Fatalf("Error connecting:  %v", err)

pool, err := c.GetPool("default")
if err != nil {
	log.Fatalf("Error getting pool:  %v", err)

bucket, err := pool.GetBucket("default")
if err != nil {
	log.Fatalf("Error getting bucket:  %v", err)

bucket.Set("someKey", 0, []string{"an", "example", "list"})
