== Welcome to CouchDB Model Skeleton

These files comprise a starting point for using CouchDB with Rails 3 and 
couchrest_model.

== Why?

The couchrest_model gem does not yet include Rails 3 initializers. It took 
some poking around and reading source to figure out configuration options--I 
hope this with save others time.

The initializer and yaml config are from couchrest-rails by Henry Poydar.

== Getting Started

1. Install current versions of CouchDB (1.0.1 or later), Bundler, Rails 3 and 
RSpec 2.

2. Install the couchrest_model gem (version 1.0.0.beta8 or newer):
       <tt>gem install couchrest_model --pre</tt>

3. Run Bundler to ensure all dependencies are met:
       <tt>bundle install</tt>

4. If step 3 failed, you must ensure your couchrest_model install can coexist 
with rails 3.0 gems. You may install the latest copy from the Github repo. 
Alternately, you can adjust the gemspec dependencies (please note that 
changing gem dependencies is NOT considered best practice):
       <tt>s.add_dependency(%q<activesupport>, ["~> 3.0.3"])</tt>
       <tt>s.add_dependency(%q<activemodel>, ["~> 3.0.3"])</tt>
You will find the gemspec file under your ruby directory:
       
<tt>lib/ruby/gems/1.9/specifications/couchrest_model-1.0.0.beta8.gemspec</tt>

5. Run specs with one of the following commands:
       <tt>bundle exec rspec spec</tt> OR
       <tt>rake</tt>

6. Batch replace the text 'CouchDBModelSkeleton' with your app's name.

7. Read up on CouchDB:
* The couchrest_model repository on Github: 
https://github.com/couchrest/couchrest_model
* The couchrest_rails repository on Github: 
https://github.com/hpoydar/couchrest-rails/
* The Apache CouchDB website: http://www.couchdb.org/

== Support

This setup has been tested with Rails 3, Ruby 1.9.2p0, rspec-rails 3.2.1, and 
CouchDB 1.0.1.
