Couchbase partner firm KuroBase has released free tools that make it faster and easier for developers to build, deploy, test, and monitor Couchbase-powered applications.
The new releases include a Heroku add-on for Couchbase, two Heroku Buildpacks for Ruby and Node.js, and New Relic instrumentation.
"KuroBase has taken a leading role in making it easier for Ruby and Node.js developers to build applications on Couchbase Server," said Rahim Yaseen, SVP of products for Couchbase. "KuroBase-supported technologies for Heroku and New Relic, make it that much easier for developers to choose Couchbase over other less-scalable NoSQL offerings."
Heroku Add-on for Couchbase brings Couchbase Server to Heroku developers. Programmers can provision a KuroBase-hosted Couchbase instance directly from the Heroku portal. The add-on simplifies database configuration by automatically delivering the correct parameters to the developer's application.
With the Heroku Buildpacks for Ruby and Node.js, KuroBase says it spent more than one year building and testing these custom Buildpacks (available on GitHub) — and they now provide a way for a developer's application to be executed on the Heroku platform.
Then to the New Relic instrumentation: KuroBase has also built a complete instrumentation for New Relic that allows Ruby developers to track metrics of all Couchbase calls from within their application. The package includes code analysis, testing, and verification tools for the New Relic platform.
"Together these open-source, freely available tools enable developers to quickly build, deploy, test, and monitor Couchbase-powered applications," said KuroBase CTO Ali Hamidi. "The combination of the Heroku platform, coupled with the New Relic analytics platform, will accelerate development of Couchbase NoSQL applications."
