LivelyCouch is a framework that integrates Node.js with CouchDB and is driven by HTTP events. It is designed to fill the gap between CouchApps and a full-fledged web application. All your LivelyCouch applications can be stored in CouchDB and replicated just like CouchApps.
LivelyCouch takes the event-model of Node.js to the HTTP layer, allowing you to write small decoupled Workers that only communicate through HTTP events and event subscriptions.

First install the latest version of CouchDB - easiest way is to use build-couchdb: git clone https://github.com/livelycouch/build-couchdb.git cd build-couchdb git submodule init git submodule update
rake git="git://github.com/apache/couchdb.git trunk"
Launch CouchDB: build/bin/couchdb
Add an Admin user with login: "lively" and password: "lively".
Make sure you have Node.js installed.
Now, get the LivelyCouch source and run the install script: git clone https://github.com/livelycouch/LivelyCouch.git cd LivelyCouch node install.js
If everything went well, LivelyCouch should now be running. From now on it will be automatically launched by CouchDB on startup.
