This is a list of experimental features in CouchDB. They are included in a release because the development team is requesting feedback from the larger developer community. As such, please play around with these features and send us feedback, thanks!
Use at your own risk! Do not rely on these features for critical applications.
You will need to install Node.JS version 0.10.0 or later. See Node.JS Downloads for options.
Install the couchjs-node binary. Either from the CouchDB sources:
cd src/couchjs-node npm link
Or via NPM:
npm install -g couchjs
NPM in non-standard locations
If your Node.JS installation doesn’t store binaries in /usr/local/bin you will need to adjust CouchDB’s configuration. Add this to your local.ini file:
[query_servers] nodejs = /path/to/couchjs-node /path/to/couchdb/share/server/main.js
And then restart your CouchDB instance.
