spawn-pouchdb-server

Configurable per-app pouchdb-server as a drop-in replacement for CouchDB

NPM version Build Status Coverage Status Dependency Status

Motivation

  1. Simplify development setup

    CouchDB is a fantastic database, but setting it up for local development is not easy, as it also requires an Erlang runtime environment. Having a built-in PouchDB-Server in our apps will make CouchDB optional.

  2. Isolated CouchDB configurations

    Many Apps require couchdb users / admins / security settings etc. Using PouchDB makes it simple to isolate these in local development. (But if you don't mind the CouchDB dependency, you can also use node-multicouch for that).

Usage

// npm install --save spawn-pouchdb-server
var spawnPouchdbServer = require('spawn-pouchdb-server')
 
spawnPouchdbServer(function (error, server) {
  console.log('PouchDB Server stared at localhost:5985/_utils')
  server.stop(function () {
    console.log('PouchDB Server stopped')
  })
})

Full example with all options (and default values)

// npm install --save spawn-pouchdb-server
var spawnPouchdbServer = require('spawn-pouchdb-server')
 
spawnPouchdbServer({
  port: 5985,
  directory: './.db',
  backend: {
    name: 'leveldown',
    location: './.db'
  },
  log: {
    file: './.db/pouch.log',
    level: 'info'
  },
  config: {
    file: './.db/config.json'
  },
  timeout: 10000, // in ms
  verbose: false
}, function (error, server) {
  console.log('PouchDB Server stared at localhost:5985/_utils')
})
