The PyCouchbase library is a Python library for working with Couchbase Server and its associated services. It provides an easy-to-use API for connecting to and manipulating data stored in Couchbase.
1. Install the PyCouchbase library
The first step is to install the PyCouchbase library. This can be done using the Python Package Index (PyPI) or by downloading a source code package and running the setup.py script.
2. Connect to a Couchbase cluster
Once the library is installed, you can connect to a Couchbase cluster. This is done by creating a Connection object and passing in the necessary parameters. These parameters include the hostname, port, username, and password.
3. Create a Bucket
Once connected to the cluster, you can create a Bucket object which represents a logical grouping of data. This is done by calling the Connection.open_bucket() method.
4. Manipulate data
Once a Bucket is created, you can manipulate data stored in it. This can be done by calling the Bucket.get(), Bucket.set(), and Bucket.delete() methods.
5. Close the connection
When you are finished manipulating data, it is important to close the connection to the cluster. This is done by calling the Connection.close() method.
