We have a new wiki. The migration is not 100% complete. You can help out by moving pages across. This wiki will exist for as long as there are pages left.

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.

Getting started with Futon, CouchDB's web-based administration console.

CouchDB includes a web-based front end called Futon which can be accessed by your browser via the following address:

From there you can create or delete databases and manage individual couchdb documents (analogous to records).

Among the other utilities are a JavaScript shell, a replicator GUI and a test suite.

Note: Try to avoid backslash + double quote and new lines in the design function using temporary views. Using them will raise the error "JSON.parse: bad control character in string literal".
