Node.js ODM for Couchbase

Ottoman is a ODM built for Couchbase and Node.js. It is designed to remove all of the boilerplate neccessary to build Node.js apps with Couchbase.

Installing

Ottoman is not yet published to npm, to install the in development version directly from GitHub, run:

npm install git+https://github.com/couchbaselabs/node-ottoman.git

Introduction

Building and interacting with models using ottoman is very simple:

var User = Ottoman.model('User', {
  'username': 'string',
  'name': 'string',
  'email': 'string'
}, {
  bucket: new couchbase.Connection({})
});

var test = new User();
test.username = 'brett19';
test.name = 'Brett Lawson';
test.email = 'brett19@gmail.com';

Ottoman.save(test, function(err) {
  if (err) throw err;

  MyModel.findById(test._id, function(err, obj) {
    if (err) throw err;

    console.log(obj.name);
    // Brett Lawson
  });
});

Documentation

As ottoman is currently in rapid active development, documentation for it is not yet available. A good source of information in the interim should be the test cases which are available in the /test/ directory.

Source Control

The source code is available at https://github.com/couchbaselabs/node-ottoman. Once you have cloned the repository, you may contribute changes by submitting a GitHub Pull Request.

To execute our test suite, run npm test from your checked out root directory.
