summary: A CouchDB backend for Prosody

***Note:** This module needs updating to the 0.8 storage module API.*


This is an experimental Prosody backend for CouchDB.


In your config file, under the relevant host, add:

    datastore = "couchdb";
    couchdb_url = "";


This module was developed as a prototype during development of the
storage provider API in Prosody 0.8. The final storage provider API is
different, so this module needs updates to work.


This implementation is a work in progress.

-   The data stored in couchdb is limited to: account data, rosters,
    private XML and vCards
