I use backbone.js myself for the frontend and store all data in localStorage, which gets synched
asynchronously using _changes feed and _bulk_docs API. I also use a tiny node.js proxy for
security reasons and for some couchDB tasks like creating User Databases and Replications.

I'm happy to answer any questions if you have any
