Couchbase Lite Local

Run a local instance of couchbase lite on you Macbook or Raspberry Pi and have it accessible via HTTP.

What?

Couchbase Lite is a mobile database solutin to provide a NoSQL database for small devices. This little tool runs it locally and exposes it's HTTP interface so you can interact with it from anything on your local machine (or even the outside). Couchbase Lite also provides syncinc capabilities so you can sync your local database to a remote using Couchbase Server.

Take a look at the REST API for everything you can do.

How?

This little jRuby tool is heavily inspired by Couchbase-Lite-PhoneGap-Plugin which does the same thing on android and iOS, but it runs locally on your Mac (or Pi)
