I am trying to download the couchbase server source codeusing repo on my windows box.
- do i need cygwin to build on windows?
- what compiler works on windows?
There seems to a Couchbase server for Windows Enterprise edition. so obviously it can be built for windows.
I just wanna know how.
Take a look at the couchbase/tlm (top-level-makefile) repo on GitHub - that has some reasonably detailed instructions for building on Windows.
Note however that people wanting to compile for Windows in the community is a pretty small set, so you may run into some issues…
