CouchApp: Standalone CouchDB Application Development Made Simple

CouchDB can serve web applications straight from the database. CouchApp is a set of tools and sane defaults for creating a CouchDB application.

What CouchApp offers

Installing CouchApp gives you a tool to create and distribute CouchDB applications. In this sense it's similar to django or rails' command line tool.

A CouchApp is simply a set of attachments and functions that will be synced to a CouchDB design document, the CouchApp tool allows you to edit these as files and then /push/ them to your database.

To help you get up and running, the CouchApp tool can generate a vanilla project with some sane defaults.

Write apps using just JavaScript and HTML

Render HTML documents using JavaScript templates run by CouchDB. You'll get parallelism and cacheability, using only HTML and JS. Building standalone CouchDB applications according to correct principles affords you options not found on other platforms.

Deploy your apps to the client

CouchDB's replication means that programs running locally, can still be social. Applications control replication data-flows, so publishing messages and subscribing to other people is easy. Your users will see the benefits of the web without the hassle of requiring always-on connectivity.
