Getting started with Erlang and the CouchDB API.
eCouch is an Erlang application that provides an API to a CouchDB server. Code and documentation can be obtained at:
eCouch design was inspired by the article Building a Non-blocking TCP server using OTP principles
It assumes that the inets application is running
Follows all the OTP design principles
Can run stand-alone with its own supervision tree or be included inside an existing supervision tree
Guarantees synchronism between calls and their responses
It is quite easy to throw together a quick interface to CouchDB in Erlang using inets or ibrowse because CouchDB API is so easy. On such interface currently exists at:
Documentation can be found as part of the library.
NOTE: erlcouch was discontinued, but picked up and pushed along at http://github.com/bdionne/erl-couch/
Another Erlang library exists as erlang_couchdb. It is actively development and tries to do as little as possible.
There's a branch implementing a transactional layer for it. Scroll down for documentation:
