Cloudant Importer Plugin for DocPad

Build Status NPM version Dependency Status Development Dependency Status Gittip donate button

Import Cloudant collections into DocPad collections.

(Cloudant is a hosted CouchDB-compatible database from IBM with a fairly generous free tier.)

Based on https://github.com/nfriedly/docpad-plugin-mongodb

Install

docpad install cloudant

Configuration

Add the following to your docpad configuration file:

plugins:
  cloudant:
    collections: [
      cloudantConfig: {account: "foo", password: "bar"} // passed directly to the [node.js client](https://github.com/cloudant/nodejs-cloudant), so a `url` is also accepted
      dbName: "posts"
      collectionName: "blog_posts" # defaults to dbName
      relativeDirPath: "blog" # defaults to dbName
      extension: ".html" # defaults to .json
      meta:
        layout: "blogpost"
    ]

Creating a File Listing

As imported documents are just like normal documents, you can also list them just as you would other documents. Here is an example of a index.html.eco file that would output the titles and links to all the blog posts from the simple example above:

<h2>Blog:</h2>
<ul><% for post in @getCollection('posts').toJSON(): %>
	<li>
		<a href="<%= post.url %>"><%= post.title %></a>
	</li>
<% end %></ul>

Using a view instead of fetching every document in the database

This allows you to limit and adjust the data in the cloundant database before downloading it to the docpad database.

plugins:
  cloudant:
    collections: [
      cloudantConfig: {account: "foo", password: "bar"} // passed directly to the [node.js client](https://github.com/cloudant/nodejs-cloudant), so a `url` is also accepted
      dbName: "posts"
      collectionName: "my_view_collection"
      viewDocument:
        _id: "_design/my_design_document"
        views:
          my_view:
            # the map function is sent to couchdb as a string.. but you can just wrap a regular function in parenthesis and call .toString() on it ;)
            map: ((doc) ->
                emit doc._id, doc
              ).toString()
      alwaysReplaceViewDocument: false # When true, the existing view is deleted and recreated before fetching the documents. (This is handy when you're updating your view function.)
    ]
