What is CouchDB?
Who uses CouchDB?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose CouchDB in their tech stack.
We implemented our first large scale EPR application from naologic.com using CouchDB .
Very fast, replication works great, doesn't consume much RAM, queries are blazing fast but we found a problem: the queries were very hard to write, it took a long time to figure out the API, we had to go and write our own @nodejs library to make it work properly.
It lost most of its support. Since then, we migrated to Couchbase and the learning curve was steep but all worth it. Memcached indexing out of the box, full text search works great.
What databases do note applications use to keep their users' notes synced across devices? The only option I keep bumping into is Pouchdb/CouchDB, but that takes me out of the AWS stack and introduces other issues and more costs.
With so many note-taking apps out there, I thought there must be a solution or a template stack. Most resources are either for a chat app with WebSockets or for toy apps without cross-device sync.
- Terrific single-node database
- Clustered database
- Offline first data sync
