Building the first ever CouchDB release coincided nicely with a complete fresh Snow Leopard install due to a dead disk. So this time I’ve tried out homebrew instead of macports as recommended by jan@
brew install erlang brew install icu4c brew link icu4c
Then, to install CouchDB normally you’d just go ahead and
brew install couchdb… and relax. But for a release it’s different;
download the bits and:
cd /tmp tar xvzf ~/Downloads/apache-couchdb-1.0.0.tar.gz cd apache-couchdb-1.0.0.tar.gz ./configure --prefix=/tmp/couchdb make make check make install pushd /tmp/couchdb/bin ./couchdb &
Then go to the browser-based test suite to check its all good.
