Installation on Mac OS X

On Max OS X there are builds available using Homebrew (see http://github.com/mxcl/homebrew) and MacPorts (see http://www.macports.org/install.php). Both of these packages are based on the native Apache CouchDB release.

You can also find a ready-to-use installation, CouchDBX, that does not require the command-line process of HomeBrew or MacPorts. You can download the CouchDBX package here http://janl.github.com/couchdbx/.

Using Homebrew

To install using Homebrew, in a Terminal type:

brew install couchdb

CouchDB can then be started using couchdb:

couchdb

Use the -h command-line option to get additional options. You can also set up CouchDB to be started automatically during login.
