CouchDB initial resouce

Im currently looking in to CouchDB and just wanted to document a few bits and pieces.

Apache CouchDB is a document-oriented database that can be queried and indexed in a MapReduce fashion using JavaScript. CouchDB also offers incremental replication with bi-directional conflict detection and resolution.

Sample data:

{"Firstname": "Andy""Lastname": "Jarrett""Twitter": "@andyj"}

On a Mac there are a couple of ways to get up and going. First you can use Mac Ports

$ sudo port install couchdb

Or you can use the REAL easy way and check out couchdbx (hat tip to @perezd)
