    Project mention: Task tracker application using NextJS and SurrealDB | | 2024-01-21

    In this article, I have shared how I have built a simple task-tracking full-stack application using NextJS and SurrealDB.

  • redis-rs

    Redis library for rust

    Project mention: Meet Fred: The most awesome Redis client for Rust. | | 2023-10-18

    The goto Redis client for Rust is called redis-rs. It has over 3k stars on Github. but I found it very annoying to use because I quickly found out that if you want to set any value you had to get a mutable reference to the underlying client. Which meant great pain to store Redis client in the global scope. People who do not know what a mutable reference is consider the let keyword in JavaScript. you can mutate or change a variable that is initiated with let.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • gluesql

    GlueSQL is quite sticky. It attaches to anywhere.

  • skytable

    Skytable is a modern scalable NoSQL database with BlueQL, designed for performance, scalability and flexibility. Skytable gives you spaces, models, data types, complex collections and more to build powerful experiences

    Project mention: Show HN: Skytable's new NoSQL engine BlueQL with injection safety, improved perf | | 2023-12-10

    Hey HN!

    I've been working on Skytable since 2020 and after several iterations from a simple K/V store, we've walked the path to this release. The goal of Skytable is to deliver a solid foundation for building data intensive applications.

    Skytable's primary goal is performance and scale. Even with a query language it can outperform K/V stores which use simple commands (benchmarks will be shared in another post).

    Several implementations in Skytable (especially around query evaluation and execution) are fundamentally different from SQL and even NoSQL counterparts and there are some entirely new concepts which might make it a little hard to grasp.

    BlueQL is a very important part of Skytable and it employs some interesting concepts to try and reduce the surface for injection attacks and tries to be a modern and secure alternative to SQL.
