CouchDB on Ubuntu 18.04
Install CouchDB using snap:
sudo snap install couchdb
Set the admin pass:
sudo snap set couchdb admin=1
Give it permissions that it needs:
sudo snap connect couchdb:mount-observe
sudo snap connect couchdb:process-control
Start the service:
sudo snap start couchdb
Go to this address in your browser: `http://localhost:5984/_utils`
Install `jq` for prettifying the output json
sudo apt install jq
Create 3 files.
1- call this file `get`
curl -sX GET http://admin:1@localhost:5984/$1 | jq
2- call this file `put`
curl -sX PUT http://admin:1@localhost:5984/$1 | jq
3- call this file `del`
curl -sX DELETE http://admin:1@localhost:5984/$1 | jq
