I'm just now hacking together yet another Ruby CouchDB library. It's
called CouchRest and is based on Heroku's RestClient as recommended by
Noah Slater.

CouchRest is here:

Documentation is still sparse - this is mostly a scratch-my-own itch
kinda thing.

You might try looking at CouchObject or CouchRest to see how the
thinner (less code) libraries handle CouchDB. As Johan said, the
CouchDB HTTP API is so simple and elegant, that you may not need as
much indirection as you're used to with Postgres etc.
