Import existing database #139

I'm probably missing the point of couchrest_model, but I already have a database, and I'd just like to import it in order to retrieve stuff from it. So, if I add stuff outside of Rails, I can't pick up the changes from console, but if I add stuff from Rails, everything works like a charm. Any ideas how to make couchrest_model aware of existing changes in the database?


This sounds more like an index issue rather than a couchrest_model issue.

  • Stop couch
  • Deleting the dot folders in the data directory (.*_design)
  • Start couch
  • Visit a view from each design document once, this should bring everything back into the indexes.
