Subject Re: Hybrid HTML5 WebApp / CouchApp - guidance sought
Date Tue, 28 Feb 2012 21:52:50 GMT
Hello Gregor,

I would love to get some ideas about authentication and node.js...
I am new to all the stuff (CouchDB, node.js, node.couch.js for
something like triggers using _changes).

I was looking at a row of CouchDB plugins for authentication (open-id,
browser-id,...) but didn't try them yet - I have still some data to
crunch about the basics.

Why did you chose a node.js based way?

Maybe have a look at

for security reasons and for some couchDB tasks like creating User Databases and Replications.
