A simple wrapper for CouchDB

Project Description
Cushion: a simple CouchDB Document API wrapper

This is a Python wrapper for the CouchDB Document API (http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/HTTP_Document_API).
It was created primarily as an exercise to learn CouchDB's document API.
The library attempts to expose a very simple interface that closely resembles REST.

For example,

from cushion import api

c = api.Cushion("http://localhost:5984/albums",
username='abc',
password='xyz'
)
c.get(id='1b0c7bb19b1bbacf7f567bf379000d9c')

returns the following JSON object:

{
'Band': 'The Postal Service',
'_rev':'1-f319aeef4dbb8c232f0257cf2a9ae64b',
'_id': '1b0c7bb19b1bbacf7f567bf379000d9c',
'Name': 'Give Up'
}

alternatively, the database can be specified at runtime,

c = api.Cushion("http://localhost:5984",
username='abc',
password='xyz',
timeout=5
)
c.get.albums(id='1b0c7bb19b1bbacf7f567bf379000d9c')

which also returns:

{
'Band': 'The Postal Service',
'_rev':'1-f319aeef4dbb8c232f0257cf2a9ae64b',
'_id': '1b0c7bb19b1bbacf7f567bf379000d9c',
'Name': 'Give Up'
}

to create a document with a document id:

c.put.albums(id='c3ea09f0-9758-480c-aa25-0f71a9caa446', Name='Transatlanticism', Band='Death Cab For Cutie')

alternatively, to create a document without supplying the document id:

c.post.albums(Name='In Ghost Colors', Band='Cut Copy')
