Build Status


pg2couch is a little utility for one-way data synchronization from Postgres to CouchDB.

At the moment, it only supports doing a "full synchronization" on startup, but the idea is to also support streaming of changes via Posgres' built-in NOTIFY/LISTEN functionality. This should allow you to have a live, read-only replica of your Postgres data.

For now, it's just a proof of concept and not production ready in any way. See the list of issues to get a view of what we are aiming for in the somewhat-near future

Supported features

  • Initial synchronization of data.
  • TODO: Only transfer modified records (#3)
  • TODO: Implement transformation of data (#2)
  • TODO: Be usable as a library (possibly a NuGet package)
  • TODO: Support the NOTIFY/LISTEN commands in PostgreSQL.

Is it fast?

It's fast enough for my use case. Feel free to suggest performance improvements; I care a lot about performance and am definitely willing to sacrifice some code readability/maintainability if the performance gain is significant.

Having that said, this is how it performed at one time, when no row transformation was taking place and no "do-we-need-to-update" check was in place. I intend to update this once I have more recent figures with more features implemented.

Not in scope

  • Supporting other source databases (MySQL, MSSQL, other ADO.NET.) This is clearly doable, but we have chosen the simple path here of only supporting what we need, i.e. PostgreSQL, which is the simplest way to get started in our use case. Feel free to fork the project and add support for other databases if you like.
