Atto

Atto is a minimalist Couchbase driver.

What does Atto do?

Atto lets you use Couchbase's memcached protocol to work with documents. Atto also supports HTTP views.

Atto automatically detects HTTP nodes. The implementation isn't very rich at this point, but it will get better in future releases.

What doesn't Atto do?

There is no way to create views from Atto.

Atto is not a "smart" memcached client. It won't automatically connect to multiple memcached servers. I suggest using Moxi, which ships with Couchbase.

API reference

Installation is simple.

$ npm install atto

Creating the object

var db = require('atto')(memcachedPort, memcachedHost, dbHost, bucketName, bucketUsername, bucketPassword)

Callbacks

Callbacks should be in the following format:

function(error, response) {}

Set

db.set(key, value, cb[, lifetime]);

Get

db.get(key, cb);

Response: An object if the value is valid JSON. Otherwise, the response is a string.

Increment

db.inc(key, value, cb);

Response: The incremented value.

Decrement

db.dec(key, value, cb);

Response: The decremented value.

View

db.view(designDoc, viewName, params, cb);

The first two parameters are strings. params should be an object (for querystring):

{
    key: 'documentKey',
    limit: 10
}

Response: Unmodified JSON from the HTTP request.

TODO

  • Optional bucket authentication (required right now)
  • More memcached functions
