Just tried out swinger. It is cool. But I can’t get authorization to work right using the trunk checkout of couch (0.11.blahblah_git). Something to hack on
But I’m more interested in playing with Sammy.js. The two application stack figures on the blog page (and in the Swinger slides) are interesting. Take away the couchdb bit, add Sakai’s K2, and you’ve got a very similar picture. Sure couchdb can serve the app with attachments to the _design doc, but that’s not the point. The point is being able to stick documents into a db and then get them out again in interesting ways without having to bend over backwards on the server side.
But again, I have to play with it for a while and see what it can do.
