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.

There is a nascent interface being built for Cincom Smalltalk. To try that out, you'll need to:

Once it's loaded, you can try things like this:

"A simple interface to Couch DB.  To create, delete, and query databases, try:"
CouchDB.Interface default databases.
CouchDB.Interface default create: 'mydb'.
CouchDB.Interface default delete: 'mydb'.
CouchDB.Interface default database: 'mydb'

"Further, you can then manipulate documents in a database, try:"
myDatabase := CouchDB.Interface default database: 'mydb'.
documentRecord := myDatabase save: myDatabase address.
myDatabase document: (documentRecord at: 'id').
myDatabase delete: (documentRecord at: 'id') revision: (documentRecord at: 'rev').

The APIs for database are fully implemented, and, other than attachments, the APIs for documents are fully implemented as well
