I am merely running through some of the exercises in 'Mining the Social

As far as I know, CouchDB doesn’t support writing view functions in Python, only JavaScript
and Erlang. Unless there’s an external view server that implements this; but that’s not
a standard part of CouchDB, rather something extra you’d have to install. Maybe double-check
the installation/setup instructions in the book?
