The Apache Software Foundation has released CouchDB version 2.0. CouchDB 2.0, is a “distributed” version of CouchDB, a mature NoSQL, document-oriented data-store that is accessable via a RESTful JSON API. Developers can take advantage of CouchDB’s offline capability and reliable data sync for web, mobile and IoT apps at (any) scale.
[NOTE: September 2017 — CouchDB 2.1 and Raspbian Stretch have been released. Check out updated instructions in this blog post]
Current Raspbian (November 2016) can “apt-get install” version 1.4 and I have previously written about getting CouchDB 1.6 running on the R-Pi. I have now installed version 2.0.0 on an R-Pi 3 and am sharing the process. It is pretty straightforward to get CouchDB 2.0 running on the R-Pi. It takes a combination of the R-Pi specific 1.6 install and the “generic linux” 2.0 install to get things running.
