Node.js client for Riak with support for HTTP and Protocol Buffers.


npm install riak-js@latest


If you clone the repository or download a tarball from github you will need CoffeeScript.

It can be installed via brew install coffee-script or npm install coffee-script.

Simply execute cake dev to start continuous compilation. You may also want to run npm link so that whenever you call require('riak-js') it will always point to the current dev version.

Test with cake test or cake -s test. Requires Vows 0.5.2.
