If sudo easy_install couchapp doesn't work for you, you can install from source.

git clone git://
cd couchapp
sudo python install

You may need to satisfy some dependencies. We hope this will happen automatically but... you never know.

Simplejson Dependency

If you are on stock Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, your version of setuptools is out of date. If your installation of couchapp fails with "error: Could not find required distribution simplejson", try running

sudo easy_install -U couchapp
