Verifying your Installation

Run a basic test suite for CouchDB by browsing here:

Getting started with developing


If you already have VS Code and Docker installed, you can click the badge above or here to get started. Clicking these links will cause VS Code to automatically install the Remote - Containers extension if needed, clone the source code into a container volume, and spin up a dev container for use.

This devcontainer will automatically run ./configure && make the first time it is created. While this may take some extra time to spin up, this tradeoff means you will be able to run things like ./dev/run, ./dev/run --admin=admin:admin, ./dev/run --with-admin-party-please, and make check straight away. Subsequent startups should be quick.

Manual Dev Setup:

For more detail, read the README-DEV.rst file in this directory.

Basically you just have to install the needed dependencies which are documented in the install docs and then run ./configure && make.

You don't need to run make install after compiling, just use ./dev/run to spin up three nodes. You can add haproxy as a caching layer in front of this cluster by running ./dev/run --with-haproxy --haproxy=/path/to/haproxy . You will now have a local cluster listening on port 5984.

For Fauxton developers fixing the admin-party does not work via the button in Fauxton. To fix the admin party you have to run ./dev/run with the admin flag, e.g. ./dev/run --admin=username:password. If you want to have an admin-party, just omit the flag.
