I forgot to mention that although it installs fine on the mac, it doesn't symlink the CLI tools when it probably should be doing so. This means that in order to use the CLI tools, I'll have to manually cd into the /Applications/Couchbase Server.app/Contents//Resources/couchbase-core/bin/ directory, or add them to my PATH.
So it would probably be a good idea to change the installation process, or add a menu item to the menu app (if that's possible), which symlinks the CLI tools to a directory that's commonly already in the user's PATH (eg, /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin). This will make life easier for users.
I'd say the overall plan of action for this ticket should be:
1. Remove section from documentation in couchbase-getting-started-install-macosx.html "When you open Couchbase for the first time, you will be asked.."
2. Remove snippet from readme.txt : "After installing the command-line tools...."*
(both of these were already mentioned earlier in previous comment)
And as part of a separate ticket:
3. Figure out a way to change the installation process, or add a menu item to the menu app (if that's possible), which creates symlinks to the CLI tools in a directory that's commonly already in the user's PATH (eg, /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin).
4. Update the documentation to inform users that the CLI tools are symlinked to a directory in their PATH, and warn them that this could break if they decide to move the Couchbase application folder to a different location on the system.
