    An ember-cli-deploy plugin to upload files to CouchDB

    This plugin uploads an Ember App to a CouchDB design doc. The Ember App is served directly to the browser from CouchDB, without any other software in the stack.

    What is an ember-cli-deploy plugin?

    A plugin is an addon that can be executed as a part of the ember-cli-deploy pipeline. A plugin will implement one or more of the ember-cli-deploy's pipeline hooks.

    For more information on what plugins are and how they work, please refer to the Plugin Documentation.

    Quick Start

    To get up and running quickly, do the following:

    $ ember install ember-cli-deploy-couchdb
    • Place the following configuration into config/deploy.js
    ENV.couchdb = {
      db: 'http://localhost:5984/emberapp'
      // optionally, if you are using ember-cli-deploy-build instead of
      // ember-cli-deploy-build-plus, also include the following
      // ddocname: emberapp,
      // couchDir: 'tmp/deploy-dist',
      // distDir: 'tmp/deploy-dist/_attachments'

    If you are using ember-cli-deploy-build, you will also need to add the following to your build hook = {
      outputPath: 'tmp/deploy-dist/_attachments'
    • Place the following configuration into config/environment.js where ddocname is normaly the same as modulePrefix:. ddocname can be changed in the configuration options.
    if (environment === 'production') {
      ENV.rootURL = '/emberapp/_design/ddocname/_rewrite/';

    If a vhost is used do the following:

    if (environment === 'production') {
      ENV.rootURL = '/';
    • Run the pipeline
    $ ember deploy


    Run the following command in your terminal:

    ember install ember-cli-deploy-couchdb
