Subject Installing a CouchApp
Date Thu, 12 Mar 2009 16:23:51 GMT
Hey, all.  I know that some of you are working on a paradigm where CouchDB
is a self-contained server that serves up both data and the application
logic for an application, so that it can be easily replicated from client to

Have you done any work to make it super-easy to install such an application
onto a client machine.  More specifically, what you want to be able to do is
(a) easily install the CouchDB runtime and (b) easily install applications
into the runtime.

Right now it appears you have to be a bit of a hacker to get all the
dependent pieces in place and going.

There is also the question of upgrade - you want a Java Web Start or Firefox
plugin style upgrade where new revisions are automatically detected and
easily installed, and the system detects when a given application is not
compatible with a given version of the runtime.

Anything like that around?  Is it in the plans?
