On AppHarbor you can get fast, hosted CouchDB by using the add-on provided by our friends at Cloudant (Cloudant was in the illustrious first batch of AppHarbor add-ons).
The Cloudant guys have great resources to get .NET developers started with CouchDB. If you don’t want to use the raw REST API, there are a bunch of solid libraries that make using CouchDB from .NET very simple. These include:
To make getting started with CouchDB on AppHarbor even faster, we have developed a simple ASP.NET MVC application that uses CouchDB as its backing store. The sample uses relax-net to talk to CouchDB. relax-net handles interaction with CouchDB service and abstracts away all JSON serialization and deserialization of .NET objects.
var repository = new Repository<T>("connectionString")
var peopleAgeFiftyOrOlder = repository.Where(x => x.Age).Ge(50)
Don’t miss out on this great piece of technology and go provision the Cloudant add-on right now!
