Apache CouchDB

The official documentation has moved to http://docs.couchdb.org — The transition is not 100% complete, but http://docs.couchdb.org should be seen as having the latest info. In some cases, the wiki still has some more or older info on certain topics inside CouchDB.

You need to be added to the ContributorsGroup to edit the wiki. But don't worry! Just email any Mailing List or grab us on IRC and let us know your user name.

Apache CouchDB is a scalable, fault-tolerant, and schema-free document-oriented database written in Erlang. It's used in large and small organizations for a variety of applications where a traditional SQL database isn't the best solution for the problem at hand. Among other features, it provides:

  • A RESTful HTTP/JSON API accessible from many programming libraries and tools
  • Futon, a browser based GUI and management tool
  • Incremental and flexible replication with conflict management
  • Incremental Map/Reduce queries written in any language (JavaScript support built-in)

  • Excellent data integrity/reliability
  • Native support for BLOBs (Binary Large Objects)
  • Easy installation on many platforms, from servers to mobile devices
  • A strong and active community
  • Good documentation in the form of Books, Presentations, Blog Posts, Wikis, and more
