The official documentation has moved to http://docs.couchdb.org — The transition is not 100% complete, but http://docs.couchdb.org should be seen as having the latest info. In some cases, the wiki still has some more or older info on certain topics inside CouchDB.
Futon Chrome Bookmark App
This is really nothing more than a glorified bookmark to your local Futon instance. It is accessible from the "New Tab" window in Chromium-based browsers (which includes Google Chrome).
This is a screenshot of how it looks.
Due to Google's Chrome Web Store policies it is not possible to install it like you would normally install such an app. You'll either have to install the Futon.crx file by dragging it into a Chrome window or by downloading the zip archive, unzipping it and then loading it from Chrome's Tools page. I'll describe both ways.
This should be fairly easy.
Download Futon.crx (by clicking on it).
Make sure a Chrome window is open (any window will work).
Drag 'n drop the Futon.crx file into that window.
Installing it from source
Don't be afraid, it is not the Linux kernel.
Download Futon.zip (by clicking on it).
Unzip it (and remember where you unzipped it).
In Chrome, go to Tools → Extensions.
3.1 In case the Developer Mode checkbox in the upper right corner is not checked do so now.
Click the Load Unpacked Extension button.
- Select the unzipped Futon directory.
