Instructions on getting up and running with Kanso's command-line
Step 1. Install CouchDB
Installing on Mac OSX
Warning: Some people have found the Homebrew install to have broken regular expressions, use build-couchdb if you have problems.
brew install couchdb
Installing on Ubuntu
sudo apt-get install couchdb
Note: Kanso is not yet officially supported on Windows, though some people have had success getting it to run with Cygwin. See the Installing on Windows wiki page.
Compile from source
For help compiling on your system, see the CouchDB Wiki.
Step 2. Install Node.js
Kanso supports the latest stable version of Node.js (v0.6.x).
Why does Kanso need node.js?
Step 3. Install Kanso command-line
Install using NPM
sudo npm install -g kanso
If you're on windows you'll have to use Kanso with cygwin until Windows is officially supported. See the Installing on Windows wiki page for more information.
