I'm not sure where to write a feature request. Hope this is the right place.
CouchDB puports to support SSL (but I think the built in one is broken in 1.6.1).
https://github.com/klaemo/docker-couchdb-ssl shows it working with Stud.
https://github.com/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=docker-couchdb-node for Node's SSL
Please this forum needs a "CouchDB" category
