"Erlang Project: Storage Choice"

September 11, 2008

It was suggested that I use CouchDB as the storage engine for blogerl. I’m not going to be using CouchDB for this project, and I would like to explain why.

My reason for choosing Git over CouchDB is really just a preference. I think Git is neat, and I want to use it in a novel way. I’d like to demonstrate how it is a very powerful tool and can be used to do more that just version software. I think CouchDB is cool, and at some point, I’ll probably do a project with it. But, for this project, it’s not what I want.

Edited: The suggestion mentioned above was in a comment, but as my blog has not suuported comments for quite some time, I have removed the hyperlink.
