 fails, make sure you have enabled Erlang views as described here:
+Getting started with developing
+Basically you just have to install the needed dependencies which are
+documented in the install docs and then run `./configure && make`.
+You don't need to run `make install` after compiling, just use
+`./dev/run` to spin up three nodes. There is a haproxy config file in `./rel`.
+Just run: `cd rel && haproxy -f haproxy.cfg`. You will now have a local
+cluster listening on port `5984`.
+For Fauxton developers fixing the admin-party does not work via the button in
+Fauxton. To fix the admin party you have to run `./dev/run` with the `admin`
+flag, e.g. `./dev/run --admin=username:password`. If you want to have an
+admin-party, just omit the flag.
