django_couchdb_utils icondjango_couchdb_utils 0.3

Provides implementations for various Django backends
django_couchdb_utils's goal is to replace the RDBMS specific backends used in Django with CouchDB using Couchdbkit.

Currently it has a moderately tested:

- Auth backend
- Session backend
- Cache backend
- Email Cache backend wraps another email backend and caches mails that could not be sent
- OpenID consumer using CouchDB store (requires django-openid)

To use this library, install Couchdbkit and reference it in your INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py

INSTALL

General Instructions

 Reference the django_couchdb_utils apps into your INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py:

 ...
 "django_couchdb_utils.auth",
 "django_couchdb_utils.sessions",
 "django_couchdb_utils.cache",
 ...


 To the COUCHDB_DATABASES (which is used by Couchdbkit) add the couchdb utils apps that you plan to use:

 ('django_couchdb_utils_auth', 'http://127.0.0.1:5984/authdb'),
 ('django_couchdb_utils_sessions', 'http://127.0.0.1:5984/sessionsdb'),
 ('django_couchdb_utils_cache', 'http://127.0.0.1:5984/cachedb'),
 ...


 If your do not use Couchdbkit otherwise, just add the following to your settings.py:

 COUCHDB_DATABASES = (
 ('django_couchdb_utils_auth', 'http://127.0.0.1:5984/somedb'),
 ...
 )


 As the library doesn't make any assumptions about the Ids of the CouchDB objects it stores, it is safe to use it with an already existing database.

 To enable authentication support add the AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS attribute in settings.py like:

 AUTHENTICATION_BACKENDS = ('django_couchdb_utils.auth.backends.CouchDBAuthBackend',)

 To enable cache support add the CACHE_BACKEND attribute in settings.py like:

 CACHE_BACKEND = "cache.couch://"

 To enable sessions support add the SESSION_ENGINE attribute in settings.py like:

 SESSION_ENGINE = "django_couchdb_utils.sessions.couchdb"

 To enable the CouchDB email caching backend, set the EMAIL_BACKEND attribute in settings.py like:

 EMAIL_BACKEND = "django_couchdb_utils.email.CouchDBEmailBackend"

 # the backend that should be wrapped by the CouchDB caching backend COUCHDB_EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django.core.mail.backends.filebased.EmailBackend'
