    Project mention: How to Deploy and Scale Strapi on a Kubernetes Cluster 2/2 | | 2023-02-03

    Strapi is the leading open-source headless CMS based on NodeJS, and its projects can vary a lot between themselves, but also Kubernetes provides a lot of flexibility. Therefore, it's worth investing some time in the best practices to integrate them.

    Project mention: Using a MySQL database to serve multiple guilds | | 2023-01-21

    If you like the OOP paradigm and you don't know a lot of the SQL syntax i also suggest looking for an ORM, which abstracts query language the language you're using like

    Project mention: I made the most customizable 2048 game you have ever played. | | 2022-11-24

    Hmm... I'm not sure why you get a "Loading..." I don't even remember adding a "Loading..." so I'm not sure what that's from. Yes, I do have a account system in place using a database. I am using Node.js and have a mysql backed account system. It requires a bit of setup to get MySQL running on your machine (depending on your operating system), but it's super easy to use on your local system if you have the environment setup. It's a bit more challenging once you take it online; I have a digital ocean droplet that's running this service and a couple more personal projects as well, which does come with a cost to have online. But at least using locally you can build something for free and then when you want you can take it online.

  • Knex

    A query builder for PostgreSQL, MySQL, CockroachDB, SQL Server, SQLite3 and Oracle, designed to be flexible, portable, and fun to use.

    Project mention: Kysely: TypeScript SQL Query Builder | | 2023-01-24

    How does HN receive SQL builders in general? I feel like most of us agree ORMs are typically a bad idea. I feel like that almost instantly leaves the need for "something" to take its place. In my experience, it's typically been a query builder like this.

    I've also tried: ("out of date" since like 2016? might be better)

    Are query builders an anti pattern? People who are doing serious/logic heavy stuff with SQL, how do you avoid a query builder (if at all?)

  • Bookshelf

    Project mention: Is there a 'batteries included' backend framework like Django, but written in JS? | | 2022-03-06

    If you're set on JS (using only one language on a team/project can be very nice) common choices for backend often involve using Express or hapi with some ORM (like Prisma or Bookshelf).

  • sqlpad

    Web-based SQL editor. Legacy project in maintenance mode.

  • gnorm

    A database-first code generator for any language

    Project mention: Architecture Pitfalls: Don’t use your ORM entities for everything — embrace the SQL! | | 2023-01-12

    Furthermore, there can be a lot of boilerplate queries we do that it's nice to not have to write, say, the same kind of delete query over and over. In the past I've used gnorm as one way of generating all that boilerplate code based on the actual database design, and it works reasonably well, but again it plays a similar role to an ORM.

  • sqlstring

    Simple SQL escape and format for MySQL

    Project mention: Finding an Authorization Bypass on My Own Website | | 2022-03-05

    As a security professional, I was horrified to find out that the maintainers don't consider this a security issue, though they did promise to take this seriously and change the API when they were made aware of it in 2014 (

    So I bumped an issue, noting this is all over HN, and offered to write a pull request for the API change proposed by the maintainers:

    Doug agreed to accept such a request, so I just sat down to figure out the code and a reasonable upgrade plan.

    Three hours later, I proudly wrote Doug this email (pasting it here because the issue and codebase are locked to non-contributors so I had to send it via email):

    OK, I have a draft pull request ready. Of course, it's a big change and I expect to get a lot of feedback and have a few rounds of back and forth and fixups before it is accepted.

    This is the plan as I envision it:

    * Release SqlString 3.0.0 that has a new allowObjectValues parameter defaulting to false. This is a new major, so it shouldn't break anybody's code.

  • zongji

    A mysql binlog listener running on Node.js.

    Project mention: How to Use BinLogs to Make an Aurora MySQL Event Stream | | 2022-10-03

    ℹ️ I tried many different ways of getting a reliable binlog stream using typescript libraries and failed. I tried, mysql2 (which didn't actually use the ROW format) and hacking on the normal mysql npm library myself. This python module which the AWS Blog: Streaming Changes in a Database with Amazon Kinesis uses was much faster to get going.
