Sync with Couchbase Lite
Use Sync Gateway to sync with Couchbase Lite apps.
Syncing with Couchbase Lite Apps
Couchbase Lite client applications use a Replicator process to synchronize their local database, through a Sync Gateway database, to a remote Couchbase Server database (server- or cloud-based) — see: Figure 1.
- Pull Replication
This is the process by which clients running Couchbase Lite download database changes from the remote (server) source database to the local target database
- Push Replication
This is the process by which clients running Couchbase Lite upload database changes from the local source database to the remote (server) target database
For more on how to build Couchbase Lite applications that use Sync Gateway replication, see the documentation for the appropriate language:
