Running the Testsuite

Run the testsuite for couch.js and jquery.couch.js by browsing to this site:
It should work in at least Firefox >= 3.6 and Safari >= 4.0.4.

Read more about JSpec here: http://jspec.info/

Trouble shooting

 * When you change the specs, but your changes have no effect, manually reload the changed spec file in the browser.

 * When the spec that tests erlang views fails, make sure you have enabled erlang views as described here: <http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/EnableErlangViews>
