If you happen to be looking at key-value stores and document databases for whatever little dev problem you have that might need to be looking at these, you’re probably like me and thinking you probably need to have a version of CouchDB on your trusty macbook to kick the tires on.
So, thank plok’s CouchDBX revival for sorting you out. Nice implementation, you can even run it independently of an already existing macports installation on your system.
You could install erlang and compile from scratch via ports, but let’s face it, sometimes those ports are a bit busted. A nice binary package with a start and stop interface is kinda what the doctor ordered.
