Wiki Storage CouchDB Build Status

An experimental module to provide CouchDB storage for an external module for Federated Wiki, rather than being built into the core.

The motivation for this is that not everybody is using CouchDB for storage, also allows for the integration to be independently maintained.

Using CouchDB for Wiki Storage

The following steps will need to be followed:

  1. Take a copy of the fedwiki/wiki-node repository. Either create a fork on the GitHub site, or clone a copy either locally or to where you wish to install Federated Wiki.

  2. In your copy, edit package.json to add the following line to the dependencies:

    "wiki-storage-couchdb": "*",
  1. If you are using git for deployment, commit this change to git.

  2. Install your modified version of Federated Wiki, either:

  • running npm install 'your-github-id'/wiki-node, if you are using github for deployment, or

  • if you modified package.json inplace by running npm install from within the modified directory. See npm-install for more ideas.

  1. When starting Federated Wiki you will need to tell it to use CouchDB. This is done by adding the following configuration setting
--database '{"type": "couchdb", "name": "otherpages", "host": '', "port": ...}'
