function answersResponse(answers) {
var url,

'://',
answers.adminUsername,
':',
answers.adminPassword,
'@',
answers.host,
':',

'/_users'
];
url = url.join('');
docId = 'org.couchdb.user:' + answers.username;
doc = {
name: answers.username,
password: answers.password,
roles: [],

db = nano(url);
db.insert(doc, docId, insertUserResponse);
}
inquirer.prompt(questions, answersResponse);
