Today we’re excited to announce a developer preview release of CBFT, which offers full-text indexing for Couchbase Server.  CBFT will allow Couchbase users to more easily add full-text search capabilities to their application without having to deploy additional infrastrucutre dedicated to search.

The CBFT developer preview offers:

  • analysis and indexing powered by Bleve, a full-text library written in Go
  • advanced index mapping to customize behavior to your documents
  • faceted search
  • incremental indexing using Couchbase DCP technology
  • index replication and rebalancing for high availability
  • index aliases for easy searching across your Couchbase buckets

This developer preview is just the first step, we look forward towards a complete integration with Couchbase Server with all the performance and stability that demands.

Here you’ll find a getting started guide, download links and technical documentation.  An important part of the developer preview process is getting high quailty feedback.  Users can discuss CBFT in the Couchbase Forums.
