How to hack Futon

New page:
== A Caveate ==

If you're running a version of CouchDB that's too out of date, Futon might do weird things.
The entire point of this exercise is to make sure that you don't need to build CouchDB by
hand just to hack on Futon though, so I'll just leave it as an exercise to the reader to keep
things in sync. I'll post corresponding SVN URL's towards the bottom.

== Bleeding Edge Instructions ==

$ svn co futon
$ wget
$ chmod +x
$ ./ futon

Assuming CouchDB is running on you can just open a web browser and point
it to

== Futon Proxy ==

The latest version of Futon Proxy is at [ GitHub]

== Getting trunk without building ==

If you're on Mac OS X 10.5 or newer, there are single click installers available to use. These
directions should work just fine if you would like to use one of those. The installers can
be found on [ GitHub]

== Futon Versions ==

If you're using an older version of CouchDB to run Futon against, you can check out a closer
version of the HTML sources by adjusting the SVN url.

# 0.10.x
$ svn co futon

$ svn co futon
