Subject Re: android couchdb: how are you using it ?
Date Sat, 11 Sep 2010 09:04:43 GMT

Hi sam,

The android apps i created up to now (internal hobby projects) all connect to couchdb @

Via replication, i preload the database from a remote instance.

 The documents i add to the local instance can also be replicated back to the remote instance.
For now, i use a basic httpclient, add authentication. This is hardcoded for now, but i am
considering to use the accountmanager for that.

 If you want, you can also make couchdb listen on all interfaces, just mount your sdcard,
and edit local.ini as you would on a normal pc. 

I wouldn't rely on that in apps, though since you cannot expect people installing your app
to do the same, too.

Cheers, dennis
