CouchStream

A Stream interface for couchdb.

example

basically just point CouchStream at your couch server ande start spraying documents in!

create a CouchStream and start writing documents to it.
has the same interface as Stream

var CouchStream = require('couch-stream')
var save = CouchStream.save({database: 'tests'})

save.write({doc: "YES"})

or even better: USE PIPE

documentSource.pipe(save)

all the following examples use EventStream
a toolkit for working creating and using Streams.

common options

each CouchStream function takes options and returns a stream.
the following options apply to all functions:

{ database: database      // database  (mandatory)
, port: port              // port (default: 5984)
, host: host              // host (default: 'localhost')
, url: 
  'http://HOST:PORT/DB'   //optional, in place of using database, host, & port
}

changes (opts)

read changes from the database, as they occur.

wraps Follow
so options that work for follow, will work the same here.

var opts = {
  since: seq              // sequence number to listen from (default: 'now')
, include_docs: boolean   // emit docs at each change (default: false)
, filter:   filter        // a path to a design doc or a filter function (default: null (do not filter))
} //plus options 

CouchStream.changes(opts).pipe(writable)

save (opts)

Save a stream of documents to the database,
wraps request
so options that work for request will also work here.

requires only the common options.

readable.pipe(CouchStream.save({database: 'tests'})) 

get (opts)

retrive the docs from a Stream of ids.
must be stream of strings, or objects with _id or id properties.

requires only the common options.

ids.pipe(CouchStream.get({database: 'tests'})) 

wait (opts)

buffer the stream until the database exists, (makes sense ahead of save)

no documents will be let through until the database has exists.
does not create the database.

var waitForExists = 
      CouchStream.wait({
        database: 'tests'
      , poll: 100    //poll for the database every 100 ms. (default: 500)
      })

var es = require('event-stream')

es.connect(
  readableStreamOfDocuments,
  waitForExists,
  CouchStream.save({database: 'tests'})
)

create

create a database, buffering the stream until the database is ready.
(makes sense ahead of save)

var createDB = 
  CouchStream.create({database: 'tests'})

var es = require('event-stream')

es.connect(
  readableStreamOfDocuments,
  createDB,
  CouchStream.save({database: 'tests'})
)

TODO

view

(pull sections at a time respecting pause, etc)

delete

delete documents from a stream of ids (similar to get).

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
