Yes - Check the archives for earlier discussions on this point.

Hi Andrew,

there are at least 4 "Couch App" frameworks out there, all doing
things slightly differently. Not all of them allow replicating/cloning
from filesystem -> couch and back again, not all of them use couchapp
js internally, each with different languages / dependencies / plugins.

All worth a look & no doubt there's more.
