Power-up your couchapp by running node modules. kanso-gardener makes it easy to add and deploy node processes with your couchapp.

This is designed to work with


Add kanso-gardener to your dependecies in kanso.json

	"name" : "test",
	"version" : "1.0.0",
    "dependencies": {
            "attachments": null,
            "kanso-gardener": null

Kanso install the package

kanso install

Create a folder called node_module in the root of your project

mkdir node_module

Create a server.js file (eg node_module/server.js) that looks like the following

var port = 38293;

console.log('here we go!');

var http = require('http');
http.createServer(function (req, res) {
  res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});
  res.end('Hello World\n');
}).listen(port, '');

if (process.send) {
                port: port

push it!

kanso push test

Now if you have a gardener running, eg

git clone
cd gardener
./bin/gardener watch http://localhost:5984

You will see output like this

info: [gardener] polling couch for design doc changes.
info: [gardener] Starting package [test] in working_dir/aHR0cDovL2xvY2FsaG9zdDo1OTg0L3Rlc3QvX2Rlc2lnbi9tdWNreW11Y2s=
info: [test] here we go!
info: [gardener] adding route /_gardener/test/_design/test
warn: [gardener] Altering Couch config, adding httpd_global_handler

Now you can visit http://localhost:5984/_gardener/test/_design/test and see 'Hello World'

You can specify multiple servers by adding a node_module_folders with the names of the folders separated by commas, for example:

"node_module_folders": "sentinel,watcher"
