js-couchdb

1.1.0 • Public • Published

couchdb.js

A Promise based ES6 library that provides an easy way to interact with CouchDB

Installation

Via NPM or yarn

npm install couchdb.js

yarn add couchdb.js

Usage

v1.1.0: On versions 1.1.0 and higher, all functions are OOP and attached to props on CouchClient. couch.listDatabases() => couch.databases.list(), etc.

couchdb.js exports a constructor that accepts an object with properties protocol, host and port. These should point to your couchdb server. They default to http, localhost and 3000 respectively.

// EXAMPLE
// Server points to localhost:5984
const { CouchClient } = require('js-couchdb');
 
// initialize the database
const db = new CouchDB({
    port: 5984
});

NOTE: Databases act like tables, and documents act like keys.

Creating a database

db.databases.create('stitch')
    .then(() => console.log('Succesfully created a DB!'));

Deleting a database

db.databases.delete('stitch')
    .then(() => console.log('Database deleted!'));

Creating a document

// first arg accepts the name of the database
// second takes in the ID
// third is the data to store
db.databases.get('stitch').then(db => db.documents.create('character', {
    disney: true,
    blue: true
})).then(() => console.log('Added a document!'));

Getting a document

database.documents.get('character');

TODO:

Better documentation.
