Couchbase on Gentoo Linux

Back in 2010 when I was comparing different NoSQL solutions I came across CouchDB. Even tho I went for mongoDB in the end, it was still a nice and promising technology even more since the merge with the Membase guys in late 2012 which lead to the actual Couchbase.

I won’t go into the details of Couchbase itself since it’s way covered all around the net but I wanted to let you guys know that I’ve packaged most of the couchbase ecosystem for Gentoo Linux :

  • dev-db/couchbase-server-community-2.2.0 : the community server edition (bin)
  • dev-libs/libcouchbase-2.2.0 : the C client library
  • dev-python/couchbase-1.2.0 : the python client library

Those packages are still only available on my overlay (ultrabug on layman) since I’m not sure about the interest of other users in the community and I still need to make sure it’s production ready enough.

If you’re interested in seeing this package in portage, please say so !

I dedicate this packaging to @atorgfr 🙂
