To install CouchDB on your Mac, download it from couchdb.apache.org. Click on the download link. Once the ZIP file finishes downloading, double-click on it. This extracts the CouchDB application to your Downloads folder. Now, you can just drag the CouchDB application to your Applications folder. Navigate to Applications, and then find CouchDB Server.
When you double-click on CouchDB Server, it starts up CouchDB and then opens the Futon user interface. You'll also notice that there is a quick icon in the upper right-hand corner of your screen. This allows you to quit CouchDB or open Futon again. If you want to use the database dumps that come with the exercise files, you'll need to use a specific path to load them in. Go to Finder and click Go from the menu. Hold down the Option key and Library appears.
From here, navigate to Application Support > CouchDB > var > lib > couchdb. This is where you can paste in the database dump files. Now you have everything you need to use CouchDB on your Mac computer.
