Futon

CouchDB comes with a built-in web-based administration console called Futon. Futon allows you to manage databases, users, and documents in a simple interface. The best part of Futon is that it's already installed and ready to go, since it comes packed with CouchDB.

Let's check it out:

  1. Open your browser.
  2. Go to http://localhost:5984/_utils/.
    Futon

    This is Futon's Overview page. On this page, you can see all of the databases in the CouchDB installation and the ability to create new ones. You should see the database test-db that we created in the previous steps, and you can also see the _users database that is in the CouchDB installation by default.
