Cloudant / CouchDB Client Library

Project description

build status docs compatibility

This library is currently a preview (beta version) of Cloudant’s new official Python library. As such it currently does not have complete API coverage nor is the documentation 100% complete. We are busily working towards bridging the API and documentation gaps, so please check back often as additions/changes will be occuring frequently.

Installation and Usage

Released versions of this library are hosted on PyPI and can be installed with pip.

The latest stable version on PyPI is 0.5.10, but is now deprecated.

The current development version, which you should now use, is 2.0.0b2. Version 2.x makes significant breaking changes – no attempt was made to reproduce the API of 0.5.10.

Because 2.0.0 is still in development (2.0.0b2) and we wish to give developers time to upgrade, version 0.5.10 will remain the latest stable version on PyPI until at least early 2016.

In order to install version 2.0.0a1 or greater, execute

pip install --pre cloudant

In order to install the deprecated 0.5.10, execute

pip install cloudant
