Discover how to program interactions with the Couchbase Server via the data, Query, and search services — using the Travel Sample Application with the built-in Travel Sample data Bucket. This version demonstrates various features of Couchbase, including the Collections feature new in Server 7.0.
Fetch the Couchbase PHP SDK travel-sample Application REST Backend from github:
git clone https://github.com/couchbaselabs/try-cb-php.git cd try-cb-php
With Docker installed, you should now be able to run a bare-bones copy of Couchbase Server, load the travel-sample, add indexes, install the sample-application and its frontend, all by running a single command:
For Couchbase Server 7.1, make sure that you have at least one node each of data; query; index; and search. For a development box, mixing more than one of these on a single node (given enough memory resources) is perfectly acceptable.
If you have yet to install Couchbase Server in your development environment start here.
See the README at https://github.com/couchbaselabs/try-cb-php for full details of how to run and tweak the PHP SDK travel-sample app.
Give yourself a username and password and click Register.
Now try out a few queries, and see Search in action for the hotel finder feature.
See the Travel App Data Model reference page for more information about the sample data set used.
