- #redirect One_laptop_per_child
- The One Laptop Per Child XO laptop is based on Fedora Linux, it can run 
CouchDB. The OLPC user interface and the applications (or activities in OLPC 
terminology) are written in Python with the ''python-gtk'' library. It would 
seem logical to have a CouchDB client written in Python for this platform.
- == Applications ==
-   * One database per child with a replica of each on the teachers laptop.
-     * Personal Journal
-     * Homework assignments with marking replicating back from the teacher to 
the student
-   * One database per class with replicas on every laptop in the class
-   * Polls
-   * Synchronous/asynchronous chat messaging
- == Features ==
-   * Opportunistic replication
-   If a couchDB server sees another one on the local network via Avahi it 
should replicate databases in common.
-   * Real time replication when available
-   All client applications should always be pointing at the local couchdb 
server. Real time replication when available would mean there is never a 
distinction between using the local replica and server replicas. If there is 
connectivity then updates should happen just as fast as if the clients were 
talking to the server directly.
-   * Database list discovery
-   A couchdb server should be able to discover databases in common between it 
and another couchdb server. Initially this would be by iterating through the 
databases and passing each other a big list. It would be good to have a URL 
that returns the server name and an MD5 hash of it's list of databases. This 
would allow one laptop to meet another and quickly decide whether or not the 
database list of the other has changed since they last met.
