A small library for basic CouchDB document-based apps.
objects are JSON derived hashes
(meaning properties support arrays, other hashes, dates, etc.)
per-class database settings
simple “finder” views
# Connect to a CouchDB server and set the default database # :default_server is optional and defaults to http://couchdb.local/ # :default_database is also optional, and is used for classes # that don't otherwise specify a database CouchCrumbs::connect(:default_database => "example_database") @server = CouchCrumbs.default_server # Make sure we're running @server.status # Create or retrieve a database @database = Database.new(:name => "example_database") # Create a class class Person # Mixin document goodness include CouchCrumbs::Document # Declare some properties property :name property :title property :status # Add :created_at and :updated_at properties timestamps! child_document :address end class Address include CouchCrumbs::Document property :location timestamps! parent_document :person end # Instantiate a new Person document with properties @person = Person.new(:name => "Steve") # Manually set a property @person.title = "CEO" # Save the document (with #before_save and #after_save callbacks) @person.save! # Get a single document from the database @steve = Person.get!(@person.id) # Instantiate and save a new document in a single call (w/ callbacks) @bill = Person.create!(:name => "Bill", :status => "Retired") # Destroy a document @bill.destroy! # Add an address to a person @address = Address.create!(:location => "123 Main, Anytown USA") @steve.address = @address
- lacks support for attachments - lacks support for show functions - lacks support for many other aspects of CouchDB - both sides of an association must be saved before being set
