coux

Minimum viable CouchDB client, really just JSON and REST

Coux, pronounced "Couch"

Coux is the least amount of CouchDB client I can imagine. It doesn't do much, but it is relaxing.

The only thing worth noting is that for coux, arrays are a perfectly good way to specify paths. And it'll do the URL encoding for you.

var db = "http://jchris.iriscouch.com/foobar";
 
// Get database info: 
coux(db, function(errinfo) {
  console.log(info)
})
 
// Get a document: 
coux([db, "mydocid"], function(errdoc) {
  console.log(doc)
  // Update a document: 
  doc.updated_by = "yours truly";
  coux.put([db, "mydocid"], doc, function(errok) {
    console.log(ok)
  })
})
 
// Create a document letting the server assign the id: 
var newDoc = {foo : "bar"};
coux.post(db, , function(errok) {
  console.log(ok)
  
  // Delete a document without sending the doc body 
  coux.del([db, ok.id, {rev : ok.rev}], function(errok) {
    console.log(ok);
  })
})

Enjoy!
