Installation

npm install xcouch

Usage Examples

Create a new user and the dabase for the user

var Store = require('xcouch')

Store.connect('http://admin:pass@localhost:5984', function(err) {
  if(err) throw err
  Store.createUser('name', 'pass', function(err, id, rev) {
    if(err) throw err
    // Hooray, we created a new user
})

How To Create Own Store Object Models

Create a file mymodel.js:

var util = require('util')
  , Store = require('xcouch')
  ;

// Add the model to the model-registry of the store
Store.addModel('MyModel', MyModel)

// Create a new model
function MyModel(id, rev) {
  if(!(this instanceof MyModel)) return new MyModel(id, rev)
  Store.call(this, id, rev)
}
util.inherits(MyModel, Store) // The model must inherit from Store

To use MyModel do the following:

var Store = require('xcouch')

// Load the model
require('./mymodel')

// Connects to the store (CouchDB)
Store.connect('http://admin:pass@localhost:9548', function(err) {
  if(err) throw err

  // Connects as a user of the store
  Store.connectUser('name', 'pass', function(err, user, getObject, db, nano) {
    if(err) throw err

    // Creates a new object
    var myObject = getObject('MyModel')

    // Saves the new object
    myObject.save(function(err, written) {
      if(err) throw err

      if(written) {
        // changes saved
      } else {
        // nothing changed, so nothing written :-)
      }
    })

    // Loads an existing object (document)
    var myObject2 = getObject('MyModel', 'idOfTheDocument')
    myObject2.load(function(err) {
      if(err) {
        // Not found
        // We could save it here under the id 'idOfTheDocument'
        // But we'll throw:
        throw err
      }
      // Print the data
      console.log(myObject2.get())
    })
  })
})

Security

Rules

  • One database per user.
  • By default, the user owns its database exclusively. No other
    user can read from or write to it.
  • Admins can do everything.
  • xCouch will never create accounts with administrative privileges.
  • Only admins can create users. Direct sign-up to the CouchDB
    will be disabled per '_security' document.

How To Run The Tests

WARNING: The tests and xCouch will make changes to your CouchDB
and those changes will not be reverted automatically. Please make
backups if you have to undo the changes xCouch made to your
CouchDB.

Understood? Ready? Then:

Copy test/options.json-dist to test/options.json and edit
the copy:

{
  "dsn": "http://[admin]:[pass]@localhost:5984",
  "user": {
    "name": "xcouchtestuser",
    "pass": "acb123"
  },
  "user_one": {
    "name": "xcouchtestuserone",
    "pass": "acb123"
  },
  "user_two": {
    "name": "xcouchtestusertwo",
    "pass": "acb123"
  }
}

Now type mocha -R spec --ignore-leaks and hit enter.

And again, running the tests will change your CouchDB in a way
you might not like. Don't blame the author for lost data or ask
the author to clean up your database afterwards.

Here is the output of the tests taken from a Win7Starter Netbook
:P

D:\Workspace\couchapps\q3\_xcouch>mocha -R spec --ignore-leaks --bail


  xCouch: Store
    V needs to connect (82ms)
    The Store User
      V must have a valid username (^[a-z][a-z0-9\_\$()\+\-\/]*$)
      V must be created (896ms)
      V and needs to connect too
      The connect of the user gave us
        V the user-document
        V a function getObject() to get objects from the db of the user
        V the db of the user as an nano-db-object
        V a nano-object to interact with the couch as the user
      A Store Object
        V will be created with getObject()
        V inherits from Store
        V is some .type()
        V has .get() to get and .set() to set fields of data
        V is .dirty after a change
        can be saved with .save()
          V will be written if dirty (108ms)
          V will not be written if not dirty
          V can be forced to be written even if not dirty
        After a save, the data
          V has a _id field
          V has a _rev field
          V has a type field
          V the type field equals the return value of .type()
        can be loaded from the store with .load()
          V will hold the same data (47ms)
        can be removed from the store with .remove()
          V .
      A new Store Object
        V will always be written on .save()

  xCouch: Security
    V we need to connect (52ms)
