Standalone CouchDB Application Development

CouchApp is designed to structure standalone CouchDB application development for maximum application portability.
CouchApp is a set of scripts and a jQuery plugin designed to bring clarity and order to the freedom of CouchDB's document-based approach.

Write apps using just JavaScript and HTML

Render HTML documents using JavaScript templates run by CouchDB. You'll get parallelism and cacheability, using only HTML and JS. Building standalone CouchDB applications according to correct principles affords you options not found on other platforms.

Deploy your apps to the client

CouchDB's replication means that programs running locally, can still be social. Applications control replication data-flows, so publishing messages and subscribing to other people is easy. Your users will see the benefits of the web without the hassle of requiring always-on connectivity.
