Offline Replication / Synchronisation (see thread)
Question: due to infrastructural reasons, online synchronisation is impossible in a project. Thus, a user asked if it were possible to create some sort of file with the delta-update that could be transported to a place with better Internet access or to the next hub (e. g. country coordination) where it is imported in the instance running there, or anything similar that could be feasible.
- If connections are bad, but work sometimes, and the use case permits that data is only synchronised sometimes, then CouchDB’s current functionalities are sufficient.
- When connections are just always bad, the user can copy the .couch file (“the CouchDB database”) to something that they can bring to a connected hub. Then they put the .couch file into a place that can run CouchDB, start CouchDB, sync from there. CouchDB will figure out the delta. In this, the full DB will carried, but only the delta will be synchronised. Just carrying the delta is currently not really an option. If that is a concern, hacking around with pouchdb-replication-stream, pouchdb-dump-cli or pouchdb-load may help.
