CouchApp is a set of scripts designed to bring clarity and order to the freedom of CouchDB’s document-based approach.
To whom it may concern (or really whoever may care ), we’re in the process of collecting the bits of CouchApp and couchapp.py related documentation and putting them into the `doc` folder of the couchapp.py repo at https://github.com/couchapp/couchapp
Sources of docs to migration are:
– this wiki
– [archive.org’s copy of couchapp.org](http://web.archive.org/web/20140207233840/http://couchapp.org/page/index)
– other places on the Web
Goal is to get a fork-able, downloadable, less-destructible copy of CouchApp information into the world somewhere. Once couchapp.org is back in operation (under Apache CouchDB oversight), these docs will head there for a permanent home.
If you’d like to help, toss documentation, tutorials, etc. into the `doc` folder of the `couchapp` repo.
The Python `couchapp` tool created a pattern for mapping filesystem contents to a Design Document. Many other tools (erica, kan.so, grunt-couch) have followed suite. So far, it’s the closest thing to a “spec” for what a CouchApp looks like in a repo.
Other formats exist, but are generally language specific. Finding, documenting, and implementing common patterns like the Filesystem Mapping, will help us grow as a community.
