couchbasekit 0.2.2

A wrapper around CouchBase Python driver for document validation and more.

couchbasekit is a wrapper around CouchBase Python driver for document validation and more. It was inspired by MongoKit and was developed by the project coming soon?, which is also an open source project.

You can get detailed information about couchbase itself from http://www.couchbase.com/ and about its Python driver form http://www.couchbase.com/develop/python/next.

Documentation: https://couchbasekit.readthedocs.org/en/latest/

Source code: https://github.com/kirpit/couchbasekit

Quick Start

Less talk, more code. Set your authentication details first:

from couchbasekit import Connection

# you should do this somewhere beginning such as settings.py:
Connection.auth('myusername', 'p@ssword')

Then define your model document.

author.py:

import datetime
from couchbasekit import Document, register_view
from couchbasekit.fields import EmailField, ChoiceField
from example.samples.publisher import Publisher
from example.samples.book import Book

class Gender(ChoiceField):
    CHOICES = {
        'M': 'Male',
        'F': 'Female',
    }


@register_view('dev_authors')
class Author(Document):
    __bucket_name__ = 'couchbasekit_samples'
    __key_field__ = 'slug' # optional
    doc_type = 'author'
    structure = {
        'slug': unicode,
        'first_name': unicode,
        'last_name': unicode,
        'gender': Gender,
        'email': EmailField,
        'publisher': Publisher, # kind of foreign key
        'books': [Book], # 1-to-many
        'has_book': bool,
        'age': int,
        'birthday': datetime.date,
        'created_at': datetime.datetime,
    }
    default_values = { # optional
        'has_book': False,
        # don't worry about the timezone info!
        # it's auto assigned as to UTC, so all you have to do is:
        'created_at': datetime.datetime.utcnow,
    }
    required_fields = ( # optional
        'slug',
        'first_name',
        'last_name',
        'email',
    )

Then use it as such;

>>> from example.samples.author import Author, Gender
>>> from couchbasekit.fields import EmailField
>>>
>>> douglas = Author()
>>> douglas.is_new_record
True
>>> try:
...     douglas.validate()
... except Author.StructureError as why:
...     print why
...
Key field 'slug' is defined but not provided.
>>>
>>> douglas.slug = u'douglas_adams'
>>> try:
...     douglas.validate()
... except Author.StructureError as why:
...     print why
...
Required field for 'first_name' is missing.
>>>
>>> isinstance(douglas, dict)
True
>>> douglas.update({
...     'first_name': u'Douglas',
...     'last_name': u'Adams',
...     'gender': Gender('M'),
...     'email': EmailField('dna@example.com'),
... })
...
>>> douglas.validate()
True
>>> douglas.save()
14379837794698
>>> douglas.cas_value # CAS value (version) of the couchbase document
14379837794698
>>> douglas.id
u'douglas_adams'
>>> douglas.doc_id
u'author_douglas_adams'
>>> douglas.birthday is None
True
>>> douglas.non_exist_field
Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "couchbasekit/document.py", line 68, in __getattr__
    return super(Document, self).__getattribute__(item)
AttributeError: 'Author' object has no attribute 'non_exist_field'
>>>
>>> dna = Author('douglas_adams')
>>> dna.is_new_record
False
>>> douglas==dna
True
>>> douglas.has_book = True
>>> douglas==dna
False
>>> # because we set @register_view decorator, here are the CouchBase views:
>>> douglas.view()
<couchbase.client.DesignDoc at 0x10d3ebe10>
>>> view = douglas.view('by_fullname')
>>> view
<couchbase.client.View at 0x10ce57410>
>>> view.results({'key': 'Douglas Adams'})
<couchbase.client.ViewResultsIterator at 0x10d40dad0>
>>> # please refer to CouchBase views documentation for further usage..
>>> # and the bucket itself for advanced folks:
>>> douglas.bucket
<couchbase.client.Bucket at 0x10fb0c2d0>
>>> print [m for m in dir(douglas.bucket) if not m.startswith('_')]
