Smalltalk and CouchDB

If you want to develop an application with Smalltalk (Pharo) and CouchDB, then continue reading this paper.

It includes a port of the Mustache web template library which is easy to use if you work with JSON. Look here for a syntax example.

Code lives on SS3 and will soon move over to SmalltalkHub (at least the project is there already, still empty).
