We have the hovercraft. It is fast and it skims just above the surface.
There is much to be added to the hovercraft, but it already flies.
An easy direct Erlang CouchDB library.
Use this to abstract CouchDB behind a simple Erlang function call. Currently supports the database and document APIs, with views on the way.
NOTE: Hovercraft is only compatible with CouchDB trunk. If the tests fail, make sure you are running on the latest latest CouchDB.
The easiest way to try Hovercraft is to put the hovercraft directory inside the CouchDB trunk directory and then launch CouchDB like this:
erlc hovercraft/*erl && make dev && ERL_LIBS="hovercraft" utils/run -i
This will open an interactive session. To run the tests, call hovercraft:test/0 like this:
1> hovercraft:test(). [info] [<0.30.0>] Starting tests in <<"hovercraft-test">> ok
To run the speed of light test, run hovercraft:lightning/0 like this:
2> hovercraft:lightning(). Inserted 100000 docs in 14.967256 seconds with batch size of 1000. (6681.251393040915 docs/sec) ok
To try different tunings, you can call hovercraft:lightning/1 with custom batch sizes. The docs in the speed of light test are small, feel free to edit the source code to try larger docs.
