CouchDb requires many bits to be installed.

Building an all in one , embeddable, no external dependencies packaging of CouchDB for each major desktop OS (Windows, MacOSX and Linux) would help make it easy for new users to get started. Installers would be a bonus.

Pioneering work has already been done with CouchDbx : a self-contained MacOSX application with all the required bits..

The goal here is to document:

  • the minimal bits that are required to install a self-contained, all-in-one, embeddable CouchDb

  • the step-by-step instructions to build those packages
  • installers creation

Some sources of inspiration:

Installer technologies:

  • package builder on macos
  • nsis on windows
  • shell archives on linux

IP and licensing issues
