Subject Re: connect Ruby on Rails app to Couchdb, using library or just plain http connection ?
Date Sun, 22 Aug 2010 13:35:06 GMT
It could be helpful when you are first learning Couch to approach it this
way.  CouchDB really is very easy to use because its API is RESTful and
pretty intuitive.

JSON.parse isn't very much code getting in your way.  You could use
as a middle ground.
