ActiveCouch – A Ruby wrapper for CouchDB

January 23, 2008

Over the last month or so (interrupted by holidays and other work commitments), my colleague Chu Yeow and I have been developing an open-source Ruby wrapper (called ActiveCouch) for CouchDB.

CouchDB has been on our radars for quite a while now, with its promise of storing vast amounts of information over a cluster of unreliable commodity hardware, and this is our attempt to make it play nice with Ruby. We believe in eating our own dogfood, and ActiveCouch is currently in the process of being used internally at Bezurk for our various products. More information on ActiveCouch can be found at the project page, as well as at the Bezurk Blog.

Version 0.1.0 is out and it shipstoday!

We’re looking forward to actively developing ActiveCouch as we believe CouchDB has a lot of potential, so here’s hoping for exciting times ahead!

Update: The gem is now available on Rubyforge. Simply run the command gem install activecouch from your favourite terminal, and you should be on your way!
