Insalling CouchDB on Mac OS X Lion

CouchDB is a document-oriented database with MapReduce feature. It provides a RESTful JSON API over HTTP. It offers distributed, featuring robust, incremental replication with bi-directional conflict detection and management. It is similar to MongoDB.

sudo port install couchdb

And after the installation this here:

sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.apache.couchdb.plist

To install couchdb as Service in the OS and start the couchdb daemon.Now you can open a browser and navigate to this address:

And that’s it. CouchDB installed, up and running!
