CallCouch is a small (34 line) PHP script you can host at Tropo to communicate with your CouchDB database via IM or SMS. It currently has two main features (or verbs): get & send.
There is a demo version running at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to try out the following verbs.
The verb "get" is optional as it's the default. This will retrieve the document from CouchDB and return it.
Try: get bigbluehat
NOTE: currently, CallCouch is setup to work against documents that have a name, url, and email fields. You could easily change that for your installation.
send ###-###-#### document
Send let's you bridge the messaging world and send an IM to email@example.com and have the resulting document sent to the phone number of your choice.
CallCouch was built during the Tek11 Hack-a-thon sponsored by Tropo. It placed third, and was the only winner developed by a single person. Thanks for the Kindle, Tropo!
