Show HN: Distributed SQLite on FoundationDB
5 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 28 Jul 2022
Hello HN! I'm building mvsqlite, a distributed variant of SQLite with MVCC transactions, that runs on FoundationDB. It is a drop-in replacement that just needs an `LD_PRELOAD` for existing applications using SQLite.
I made this because [Blueboat](https://github.com/losfair/blueboat) needs a native SQL interface to persistent data. Apparently, just providing a transactional key-value store isn’t enough - it is more easy and efficient to build complex business logic on an SQL database, and it seems necessary to bring a self-hostable distributed SQL DB onto the platform. Since FoundationDB is Blueboat’s only stateful external dependency, I decided to build the SQL capabilities on top of it.
At its core, mvsqlite’s storage engine, mvstore, is a multi-version page store built on FoundationDB. It addresses the duration and size limits (5 secs, 10 MB) of FDB transactions, by handling multi-versioning itself. Pages are fully versioned, so they are always snapshot-readable in the future. An SQLite transaction fetches the read version during `BEGIN TRANSACTION`, and this version is used as the per-page range scan upper bound in future page read requests.
For writes, pages are first written to a content-addressed store keyed by the page's hash. At commit, hashes of each written page in the SQLite transaction is written to the page index in a single FDB transaction to preserve atomicity. With 8K pages and ~60B per key-value entry in the page index, each SQLite transaction can be as large as 1.3 GB (compared to FDB's native txn size limit of 10 MB).
mvsqlite is not yet "production-ready", since it hasn’t received enough testing, and I may still have a few changes to make to the on-disk format. But please ask here if you have any questions!

This sounds quite a bit like Cloudflare Workers, and they have a comparison page - https://github.com/losfair/blueboat/wiki/Comparison-with-Clo....

> If one writes Go or Rust, there are much better ways to run them than targeting WASM
wasm has its place, especially for contained workloads that can be wrapped in its strict capability boundaries (think, file-encoding jobs that shouldn't access anything else but said files: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=29112713).
> Containers are still the defacto standard.
wasmedge , atmo , krustlet , blueboat  and numerous other projects are turning up the heat !

They're not perfectly isolated to a high security standard such that you could deploy your own v8 workers SaaS. And they do have quirks and development woes. I haven't tested in production but if it's just your trusted apps wanting to exceed the cloudflare workers 30 scripts limit then both are wonderfully powerful solutions to put behind a https proxy.

So TypeScript intentionally suppresses this kind of complaint when matching up function types even though it issues them when calling functions directly. The reason for that has a justification, but in contexts like this, I think it is a WAT-worthy interaction.

Understanding the Benefits of "Quirky" Web Languages
6 projects | dev.to | 28 Mar 2023
As we can see, there are different types of non-strict behavior. I am not advocating for weak or untyped variables, although that's another aspect of web technology in its original form and the reason for TypeScript and PHP Standards Recommendations. Fault tolerance might invite people to overoptimize, making code harder to understand and introduce new potential sources of error. That can be fixed by advocating strict and orderly source code, which might or might not be transpiled to a more compact output. Actually this is the main point of robustness: "be conservative [or strict] in what you do, be liberal in what you accept from others".

Let's get started. First, you need to write a code to extract various pieces of code from the project, such as functions. TypeScript provides a convenient compiler API for working with an AST, which simplifies the task. Install csv-stringify library to generate CSV:

(Not that I encourage it. I'm one of those "a website should give a first-class NoScript/uMatrix experience" people and prefer to use traditional server-side rendering with progressive enhancement via TypeScript. See Publishing Rust types to a TypeScript frontend if you want to go that route.)
