node-red-contrib-couchdb 0.0.1

A node-red couchdb node

npm install node-red-contrib-couchdb

Accessor nodes for Apache CouchDB from Node-RED.


Use npm install node-red-contrib-couchdb to install.


This package provides some nodes that can be used in conjunction with an Apache CouchDB. Specifically, we can insert new documents and query/retrieve existing documents. For the insertion, we supply the JavaScript document in the msg.payload property which could include the _id property to provide the identity. If we are updating the document, then a valid _rev property should also be present.

For a query/retrieval, we have the choice of either retrieving by id value or by a design document view search. For an id, specify the _id value as the msg.payload. For a design document view retrieval, supply the search key in msg.payload.

In both cases, the document is returned as the output msg.payload.

To connect to the database, the URL for the CouchDB server should be supplied along with the database name for the database to be accessed.
