SQL Server Import Wizard
As we promised this January, we added to Kanapes IDE a really nice and handy tool - SQL Server Import Wizard, it will help you with migrating your data from data tables and views into CouchDB. You will find this tool by right-clicking on any selected server node in your Project Explorer.
More detailed tips about SQL Server Import Wizard we will describe in dedicated blog post coming up shortly.
Cloudant Search 2.0
Another interesting feature we added is support for Cloudant Search 2.0. Cloudant’s search is built upon Lucene and allows you to do more ad hoc queries over your data than can be done with primary and secondary indexes. Please note that adding indexes to Kanapes IDE Project Explorer works only on Cloudant hosted servers. Just select any db from the list, select Design Document, right click and you will see new menu item appeared called ndx. When you select it, following dialog will popup, so just name your index and you will get into a code editor mode like with other function types.
Etc additions and improvements
You can Copy and Paste Design Documents between Databases, view Document Revisions, your recently opened projects now listed on welcome tab for a quick access. We also added you quick links for two CouchDB hosting options to start with if you don’t want to run your own CouchDB for any reason. Still, if you want to play with Cloudant Search 2.0 (https://cloudant.com/for-developers/search/) you need an account for that.
Also, you can compact databases and views as well with performing cleanup on selected views.
Having OSX and Linux builds are still on our list, but no timeline defined for these ones.
