  • cube.js

    📊 Cube — The Semantic Layer for Building Data Applications

  • Project mention: MQL – Client and Server to query your DB in natural language | | 2024-04-07

    I should have clarified. There's a large number of apps that are:

    1. taking info strictly from SQL (e.g. information_schema, query history)

    2. taking a user input / question

    3. writing SQL to answer that question

    An app like this is what I call "text-to-sql". Totally agree a better system would pull in additional documentation (which is what we're doing), but I'd no longer consider it "text-to-sql". In our case, we're not even directly writing SQL, but rather generating semantic layer queries (i.e.

  • WorkOS

  • diesel

    A safe, extensible ORM and Query Builder for Rust

  • Project mention: Top 10 Rusty Repositories for you to start your Open Source Journey | | 2023-12-19

    7. Diesel

    🧰 The Rust SQL Toolkit. An async, pure Rust SQL crate featuring compile-time checked queries without a DSL. Supports PostgreSQL, MySQL, and SQLite. (by launchbadge)

  • Project mention: Rust as a general application language | /r/rust | 2023-12-09

    What exactly are you missing? I haven't really written "boring corporate backend stuff" in a few years but something like sqlx provides everything I've ever needed there.

  • prql

    PRQL is a modern language for transforming data — a simple, powerful, pipelined SQL replacement

  • Project mention: Prolog language for PostgreSQL proof of concept | | 2024-03-30
  • databend

    𝗗𝗮𝘁𝗮, 𝗔𝗻𝗮𝗹𝘆𝘁𝗶𝗰𝘀 & 𝗔𝗜. Modern alternative to Snowflake. Cost-effective and simple for massive-scale analytics.

  • Project mention: Solutions to manage runaway Snowflake costs? | | 2024-01-16

  • risingwave

    Cloud-native SQL stream processing, analytics, and management. KsqlDB and Apache Flink alternative. 🚀 10x more productive. 🚀 10x more cost-efficient.

  • Project mention: Proton, a fast and lightweight alternative to Apache Flink | | 2024-01-30

    How does this compare to RisingWave and Materialize?

  • InfluxDB

  • sea-orm

    🐚 An async & dynamic ORM for Rust

  • Project mention: Rust GraphQL APIs for NodeJS Developers: Introduction | | 2024-02-08

    SQL with SeaORM:

  • toydb

    Distributed SQL database in Rust, written as a learning project

  • Project mention: ToyDB: A Rust learning adventure, fun open-source project, and database learning resource for the community | /r/rust | 2023-05-06

    This is great, but you might want to consider a different name. There's already a Rust project called ToyDB, and it's a distributed database with a Raft log, SQL, disk persistence, ACID transactions, etc. It's under active development (though the developer now works at Cockroach Labs), and has 5K stars on GitHub, so I think they have the right to the name.

  • materialize

    The data warehouse for operational workloads. (by MaterializeInc)

  • Project mention: Ask HN: How Can I Make My Front End React to Database Changes in Real-Time? | | 2024-04-17


  • arrow-datafusion

    Apache DataFusion SQL Query Engine

  • Project mention: Velox: Meta's Unified Execution Engine [pdf] | | 2024-03-25

    Python's Substrait seems like the biggest/most-used competitor-ish out there. I'd love some compare & contrast; my sense is that Substrait has a smaller ambition, and more wants to be a language for talking about execution rather than a full on execution engine.

    We can also see from the DataFusion discussion that they too see themselves as a bit of a Velox competitor.

  • readyset

    Readyset is a MySQL and Postgres wire-compatible caching layer that sits in front of existing databases to speed up queries and horizontally scale read throughput. Under the hood, ReadySet caches the results of cached select statements and incrementally updates these results over time as the underlying data changes.

  • Project mention: Ask HN: How Can I Make My Front End React to Database Changes in Real-Time? | | 2024-04-17

    - Some platforms like Supabase Realtime [3] and Firebase offer subscription models to database changes, but these solutions fall short when dealing with complex queries involving joins or group-bys.

    My vision is that the modern frontend to behave like a series of materialized views that dynamically update as the underlying data changes. Current state management libraries handle state trees well but don't seamlessly integrate with relational or graph-like database structures.

    The only thing I can think of is to implement it by myself, which sounds like a big PITA.

    Anything goes, Brainstorm with me. Is it causing you headaches as well? Are you familiar with an efficient solution? how are you all tackling it?

  • gobang

    A cross-platform TUI database management tool written in Rust

  • Project mention: Ratatui | | 2023-12-10

    I think a lot of Ratatui apps will tend to land on similar concepts for your app. There's a few good examples of apps using a component approach rather than just widgets that I'm aware of:




    Perhaps the intuitive crate would make a good abstraction on top of Ratatui?

  • gluesql
