Just a quick howto for getting raindrop running on Ubuntu. For added points this server is ‘in the cloud’.

apt-get install build-essential erlang libicu-dev libmozjs-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev

svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/couchdb/branches/0.10.x/

cd trunk
sudo make install
adduser —system —home /usr/local/var/lib/couchdb —no-create-home —shell /bin/bash —group —gecos “CouchDB Administrator” couchdb

chown -R couchdb:couchdb /usr/local/etc/couchdb
chown -R couchdb:couchdb /usr/local/var/lib/couchdb
chown -R couchdb:couchdb /usr/local/var/log/couchdb
chown -R couchdb:couchdb /usr/local/var/run/couchdb

chmod -R 0770 /usr/local/var/lib/couchdb
chmod -R 0770 /usr/local/var/log/couchdb
chmod -R 0770 /usr/local/var/run/couchdb

sudo -i -u couchdb couchdb -b
