Project description


Build Status PyPI PyPI - Downloads Coverage Status

Modern pure python CouchDB Client.

Currently there are several libraries in python to connect to couchdb. Why one more? It's very simple.

All seems not be maintained, all libraries used standard Python libraries for http requests, and are not compatible with python3.

Advantages of py-couchdb

  • Use requests for http requests (much faster than the standard library)
  • Python2 and Python3 compatible with same codebase (with one exception, python view server that uses 2to3)
  • Also compatible with pypy.


>>> import pycouchdb
>>> server = pycouchdb.Server("http://admin:admin@localhost:5984/")


To install py-couchdb, simply:

pip install pycouchdb


Documentation is available at


To test py-couchdb, simply run:

    nosetests --cover-package=pycouchdb --with-doctest
