    Overview

    Couchbase Lite supports replication between two local databases. This allows a Couchbase Lite replicator to store data on secondary storage. It is especially useful in scenarios where a user’s device may be damaged and its data moved to a different device.

    Example 1. Replication between Local Databases
    let targetDatabase = DatabaseEndpoint(database: database2)
    let config = ReplicatorConfiguration(database: database, target: targetDatabase)
    config.replicatorType = .push
    
    self.replicator = Replicator(config: config)
    self.replicator.start()

    Note: The code does not compile in Couchbase Lite Community Edition.
