baseview is a minimalistic CouchBase client for node.js based on the minimalistic CouchDB driver nano.

CouchBase provides view data as JSON, which can be accessed and streamed with this client. To store and retrieve single documents/key-value pairs, the memcached-library is required.


  baseview = require('baseview')('')


  baseview.view('design_doc', 'view_name', function(error, data) {
    console.log(error, data);

example with

  io.sockets.on('connection', function (socket) {
    baseview.view('feed', 'images', function(error, data) {
      socket.emit('image_feed', data.rows);
