PouchDB's Couch in the browser goes alpha
After some months of development work, Dale Harvey has announced that the PouchDB "pocket-sized database" is now alpha software and has a web site. PouchDB is based on the work of Apache CouchDB and gives a developer access, through a simple API, to store and retrieve JSON objects and documents. Because the API is similar to that of CouchDB, PouchDB can synchronise with CouchDB instances or other PouchDB instances.
PouchDB was created by Mikeal Rogers, former Couchbase employee, as a successor to his BrowserCouch project. Rogers credits Harvey with making "this thing a real project". Source code to the Apache 2.0 licenses PouchDB can be found on Harvey's Github repository.
