= eCouch =

eCouch is an Erlang application that provides an API to a CouchDB server. Code and documentation
can be obtained at:

  http://code.google.com/p/ecouch

== Characteristics ==

  * Uses the [http://www.lshift.net/blog/2007/02/17/json-and-json-rpc-for-erlang rfc4627]
module from [http://www.lshift.net/ LShift]
  * eCouch design was inspired by the article [http://www.trapexit.org/Building_a_Non-blocking_TCP_server_using_OTP_principles
Building a Non-blocking TCP server using OTP principles]
  * It assumes that the [http://www.erlang.org/doc/apps/inets/index.html inets] application
is running

== Features ==

  * Follows all the OTP design principles
  * Can run stand-alone with its own supervision tree or be included inside an existing supervision
tree
  * Guarantees synchronism between calls and their responses

= erlcouch =

It is quite easy to throw together a quick interface to CouchDB in Erlang using inets or ibrowse
because CouchDB API is so easy. On such interface currently exists at:

  http://code.google.com/p/erlcouch/

Documentation can be found as part of the library.


= erlang_couchdb =

Another Erlang library exists as erlang_couchdb. It is actively development and tries to do
as little as possible.
