Ann Arbor Craftsman Guild — CouchDB & CouchApps

Here are the slides and example code from my CouchDB & CouchApps talk at the Ann Arbor Craftsman Guild.

About Chirpr

Chripr is the example app we wrote — a single user Twitter clone. Its Couch design document is declared in app.js and built using Mikeal Roger's couchapp utility. The easiest way to grab couchapp is via npm:

npm install --global couchapp

Then, within the repo, simply create a target database on your CouchDB of choice and deploy the app:

curl -X PUT http://localhost:5984/chirpr
couchapp push app.js http://localhost:5984/chirpr
