How to use Go-Couchbase

Today I will try to use Go-Couchbase, to insert, fetch, update and delete from database. To install go-couchbase, type this commands:

go get -u -v github.com/couchbaselabs/go-couchbase

Then just create an example source code and run it:

package main

import (



var FILE_PATH string
var CB *couchbase.Bucket

// initialize file path
func init() {
_, file, _, _ := runtime.Caller(1)
FILE_PATH = file[:4+strings.Index(file, "/src/")]
err := errors.New("no error")
CB, err = couchbase.GetBucket("", "default", "default")
Panic(err, "Error connection, getting pool or bucket:  %v")

// print warning message
func Check(err error, msg string, args ...interface{}) error {
if err != nil {
_, file, line, _ := runtime.Caller(1)
str := fmt.Sprintf("%s:%d: ", file[len(FILE_PATH):], line)
fmt.Errorf(str+msg, args...)
res := pretty.Formatter(err)
fmt.Errorf("%# v\n", res)
return err

// print error message and exit program
func Panic(err error, msg string, args ...interface{}) {
if Check(err, msg, args...) != nil {

// describe a variable
func Explain(args ...interface{}) {
_, file, line, _ := runtime.Caller(1)
//res, _ := json.MarshalIndent(variable, "   ", "  ")
for _, arg := range args {
res := pretty.Formatter(arg)
fmt.Printf("%s:%d: %# v\n", file[len(FILE_PATH):], line, res)

func main() {

var err error

// save values (upsert)
err = CB.Set("someKey", 0, []string{"an", "example", "list"})
Check(err, "failed to set somekey")

err = CB.Set("primaryKey", 0, 1)
Check(err, "failed to set primaryKey")

// fetch one value
var rv interface{}
err = CB.Get("someKey", &rv)
Check(err, "failed to get someKey")

// fetch with CheckAndSet id
cas := uint64(0)
err = CB.Gets("primaryKey", &rv, &cas)
Check(err, "failed to get primaryKey")
Explain(cas, rv)

// fetch multivalue
rows, err := CB.GetBulk([]string{"someKey", "primaryKey", "nothingKey"})
Check(err, "failed to get someKey or primaryKey or nothingKey")

jsonStr := rows["someKey"].Body

stringList := []string{}
err = json.Unmarshal(jsonStr, &stringList)
Check(err, "failed to convert back to json")

// increment value, returns new value
nv, err := CB.Incr("primaryKey", 1, 1, 0)
Check(err, "failed to increment primaryKey")

// increment value, defaults to 1 if not exists
nv, err = CB.Incr("key3", 1, 1, 60)
Check(err, "failed to increment primaryKey")


This would give an output:

/test.go:92: []interface {}{
/test.go:98: uint64(0x13aa8b32b9f7f091)
/test.go:98: float64(1)

        Fatal:  false,
/test.go:106: "[\"an\",\"example\",\"list\"]"
/test.go:111: []string{"an", "example", "list"}
/test.go:116: uint64(0x2)
