You can easily install couchbasekit via pip:

$ pip install couchbasekit


couchbasekit has dependencies on:

Then, the only configuration you have to do is couchbase authentication, somewhere at the beginning of your application (such as if you’re using Django Web Framework for example):

from couchbasekit import Connection
Connection.auth('theusername', 'p@ssword')


from couchbasekit import Connection
    username='theusername', password='p@ssword',
    server='localhost', port='8091', # default already

That’s it. Now, you are ready for a crash course. See Quick Start.
