Download and build source code on Windows


#1

Hi All,

I am trying to download the couchbase server source codeusing repo on my windows box.
So,

  1. do i need cygwin to build on windows?
  2. what compiler works on windows?

There seems to a Couchbase server for Windows Enterprise edition. so obviously it can be built for windows.
I just wanna know how.

Thanks
Thambi

Hi, Thambi

Here are some links that should help:
http://www.couchbase.com/wiki/display/couchbase/Building+Couchbase+from+Source+on+Windows
http://docs.couchbase.com/admin/admin/Install/Windows-install.html

We are working on improving documentation and new doc should be available soon.

Thanks,
Qi

Take a look at the couchbase/tlm (top-level-makefile) repo on GitHub - that has some reasonably detailed instructions for building on Windows.

Note however that people wanting to compile for Windows in the community is a pretty small set, so you may run into some issues…
