Using Cloudant

Cloudant’s hosted CouchDB service is the quickest and easiest way to connect your AppHarbor applications to Apache CouchDB. After you provision the Cloudant add-on and re-deploy your application, you can fetch the CouchDB URL from the <appSettings/> section of your "Web.config" file. The setting we inject is called CLOUDANT_URL and to read it from the config file, you would do something like:

var couchUrl = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings.Get("CLOUDANT_URL");

Cloudant has resources to get .NET developers started with CouchDB and AppHarbor provides a sample app using CouchDB that you can deploy straight to the platform without modifications.
