Subject Re: Erlang Api for Couchdb
Date Wed, 03 Sep 2008 13:56:31 GMT
There is not yet an official Erlang level API. but if you want, you  
can just launch CouchDB and call the functions that the couch_httpd  
module calls. But that might be too ugly :) We want to refactor things  
to include a clean native Erlang API, we just haven't gotten around to
