For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Announcing Didact the anti-CMS!
1 project | dev.to | 3 Mar 2021
This project has been half a year in the making. I've learned so much from it, most importantly Crystal and learning to love SQLite and hate Postgres. The journey led me through contributing to several dependencies, including the Granite ORM, Markd, the SQLite3 bindings, and even creating Sanemark implementing it in a fork of Markd!
It seems like Rust software is bad

The 3 Crystal ORMs I've checked out, Granite, Clear, and Jennifer, are all 10k lines or less. Given Crystal's pragmatism-before-purity philosophy compared to Rust, I'd expect them to be a little briefer, but not that much.
Frustrations with Crystal ORMs
But now that Didact is released and I'm trying to refactor my own website's code to use it, I'm realizing even more inadequacies in the ORM library I'm currently using than I thought. Here are the inadequacies of Granite:
The "generate create table SQL from model definition" feature is not usable for my use case because it doesn't treat foreign keys at all, only basic fields and types. It actually doesn't even support NOT NULL columns right now except for the primary key, and my PR to fix that has been hanging for two weeks.
What are some alternatives?
jennifer - Crystal ORM using ActiveRecord pattern with flexible query DSL
crecto - Database wrapper and ORM for Crystal, inspired by Ecto
avram - A Crystal database wrapper for reading, writing, and migrating Postgres databases.
core - A delightful SQL ORM ☺️
active_record.cr - Active Record pattern implementation for Crystal.
selenite-db - Persistence Layer for your Crystal Application
ohm-crystal - Ohm for Crystal
stal-crystal - Set algebra solver for Redis
