I know Futon is nice, but as a developer i need more power. And even though HTTP is ubiquitous, i need simple ways of sending requests to Couchdb, without dealing with setting the headers and json encoding the parameters.
So I wrote a simple, irb based Couchdb Console, we call it Couchup.
With code available on GitHub.
