PuREST JSON is a library for connecting Puredata (Pd) to HTTP services and encoding and decoding JSON data.
The library can issue GET, POST, PUT and DELETE statements, so consumation of RESTful services is possible, e.g. CouchDB.
The library used to be called CouchPdb, but handles all HTTP requests, so the name was not fitting any more.
About Puredata (From the official website)
Pd (aka Pure Data) is a real-time graphical programming environment for audio, video, and graphical processing. It is the third major branch of the family of patcher programming languages known as Max (Max/FTS, ISPW Max, Max/MSP, jMax, etc.) originally developed by Miller Puckette and company at IRCAM. The core of Pd is written and maintained by Miller Puckette and includes the work of many developers, making the whole package very much a community effort.
