Subject Re: LivelyCouch - a framework around CouchDB and Node.js
Date Tue, 07 Dec 2010 17:55:47 GMT

the CouchDB and Node.js community.
You can now find the source and a first tutorial on the project site:

A second more advanced tutorial will follow tomorrow. Mikeal, if you 
don't mind I will borrow your e-mail outbox scenario from the js 
conference in Berlin - it suits perfectly as a LivelyCouch use case :)
