CouchDb 1.6.1

Free and open source document database server
  4 Screenshots
CouchDb is a document database server, accessible via a RESTful JSON API, ad-hoc and schema-free with a flat address space, a distributed, featuring robust, incremental replication with bi-directional conflict detection and management, and a query-able and index-able, featuring a table oriented reporting engine that uses Javascript as a query language.

CouchDb is not a relational database, a replacement for relational databases, an object-oriented database. Or more specifically, meant to function as a seamless persistence layer for an OO programming language.

The programming interface is now stable enough to encourage application development on top of CouchDb.

Please remember that it is still 'alpha software' and that some features may be changed or removed in a future release.

Main features:

  • a REST API using JSON instead of XML for data transport
  • a JavaScript view engine based on Mozilla Spidermonkey
  • a GNU Autotools build system supporting most POSIX systems (Noah Slater)
  • a built-in administration interface (Christopher Lenz)
  • experimental fulltext search with Lucene (Jan Lehnardt)
  • countless tweeks, enhancements and other small refinements.
