CouchDB database driver for Laravel 5.5+


laravel-couchdb uses doctrine/couchdb.


composer require bnbwebexpertise/laravel-couchdb.

For laravel 5.5 and older, add the service provider in app/config/app.php:


When using CouchDB connections, Laravel will automatically provide you with the corresponding CouchDB objects.


Change your default database connection name in app/config/database.php:

'default' => 'couchdb',

And add a new couchdb connection:

'couchdb' => [
    'driver'   => 'couchdb',
    'type'     => 'socket',
    'host'     => 'localhost',
    'ip'       => null,
    'port'     => 5984,
    'dbname'   => 'database',
    'user'     => 'username',
    'password' => 'password',
    'ssl'      => false,
    'logging'  => false,
    'timeout'  => 15,


 * @var \Bnb\Laravel\CouchDb\CouchDbConnection
$connection = DB::connection('couchdb');

 * @var \Doctrine\CouchDB\CouchDBClient
$couchdb = $connection->getCouchDB();

Create/Update/Find Document example

$connection = DB::connection('couchdb');
$couchdb = $connection->getCouchDB();

list($id, $rev) = $connection->postDocument(array('foo' => 'bar'));
$couchdb->putDocument(array('foo' => 'baz'), $id, $rev);
$doc = DB::connection('couchdb')->findDocument($id);

All three methods can be called on $connection or $couchdb.
