node-couchdb-api

This node.js module aims to provide a clean, asynchronous wrapper for the CouchDB API.

It uses callbacks that follow node.js conventions and aims to be as expressive as possible.

Installation

$ npm install couchdb-api

Usage

var couchdb = require("couchdb-api");

// connect to a couchdb server (defaults to localhost:5984)
var server = couchdb.srv();

// test it out!
server.info(function (err, response) {
    console.log(response);

    // should get `{ couchdb: "Welcome", version: "1.0.1" }
    // if something went wrong, the `err` argument would provide the error that CouchDB provides
});

// select a database
var db = server.db("my-database");

db.info(function (err, response) {
    console.log(response);

    // should see the basic statistics for your test database
    // if you chose a non-existant db, you'd get { error: "not_found", reason: "no_db_file" } in place of `err`
});
