Module couchdb

Access to CouchDB.

This module provides actions that allow access to CouchDB.

The module uses Luchia to interface with CouchDB, so it must be installed and configured correctly.

For all actions below that support the 'server' parameter: the 'server' parameter is a table of connection parameters to the CouchDB server, see here for details.

If things aren't working, be sure to check the log file, as configured in luchia/conf.lua.
