Cloudant Index Creation using node and nano.js
/*
nano doesn't yet have support for Cloudant's new index feature,
but you can still do it using nano's request function.
This code creates an index.
To try this, first replicate the database as per
instructions here:
http://docs.cloudant.com/guides/cloudant-query.html
Then install nano like so:
npn install nano
And then run this file (after replacing USERNAME
and PASSWORD with your own):
node create_C_index.js
Then here's some sample code for querying:

*/
var nano = require('nano')({ url: 'https://[USERNAME]:[PASSWORD]@[USERNAME].cloudant.com' });
var query = {
"index": {
"fields": ["Person_name"]
}
}
var opts = {
path: '_index',
db: 'movies-demo',
method: 'post',
body: query
};
nano.request(opts, function(err, result) {
// err should be null
console.log(err);
// result should be { result: 'created' }
console.log(result);
});
