CouchDB and Erlang dependencies in Natty

Asked by Ruslan Kamaldinov on 2011-05-02

How comes that such a small (but great) application depends on CouchDB and Erlang respectively? I've looked through the sources and didn't find anything about couchdb or something like that.

Is it a specific problem of Ubuntu Natty distribution or indicator-weather really depends on CouchDB?
If this app really depends on CouchDB, maybe there is a possibility to replace it with something lightweight? I think, that it's not ok to have a whole database running to display weather info applet.

Thanks.

We are using desktopcouch as a DB to store cached data and settings.
Desktopcouch is using couchdb.
As soon as many Ubuntu applications are using desktopcouch, this should not
severely affect the performance.

If you have any other suggestions on lightweight DB please, feel free to
suggest them here.

Vadim,

Thanks for response. I'll close my question since Desktopcouch is a common storage system for many Ubuntu apps.
