The book is a quick guide to everything you need to know to start working with and building applications with CouchDB. 

Some highlights of the contents:

  • Install CouchDB on Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, or (if you must) from the source code
  • Interact with data through CouchDB’s RESTful API, and use standard HTTP operations, such as PUT, GET, POST, and DELETE
  • Use Futon—CouchDB’s web-based interface— to manage databases and documents, and to configure replications
  • Learn how to create, update, and delete documents in JSON format, and how to create and delete databases
  • Work with design documents to get the formatting and indexing your application requires
