    Project mention: Sveltekit SPA Mode: Prevent serverside code | reddit.com/r/sveltejs | 2022-11-14

    Project mention: How does one set up MongoDB using "vanilla" JS? | reddit.com/r/mongodb | 2022-08-19

    Project mention: Public Angular Project | reddit.com/r/angular | 2022-05-08

  • slonik

    A Node.js PostgreSQL client with runtime and build time type safety, and composable SQL.

    Project mention: Kysely: TypeScript SQL Query Builder | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-01-24

    I think this is a really cool project, but for most use cases (not all, but most) I strongly believe query builders are an anti-pattern. I could go over the reasons, but when I saw this blog post, https://gajus.medium.com/stop-using-knex-js-and-earn-30-bf41..., from the author of slonik years ago I had a eureka moment, and it explains the reasoning better than I could.

    Template strings in TypeScript allow you to safely write SQL directly, still with type checking: https://github.com/gajus/slonik#readme

    Project mention: irelia VS grist-core - a user suggested alternative | libhunt.com/r/irelia | 2023-02-03

    Project mention: Announcing a new TypeScript ORM | reddit.com/r/typescript | 2023-02-04

  • cloudbeaver

    Cloud Database Manager

    Project mention: WAL Mode in LiteFS | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-01-04

    Hi, author of litexplore here!

    I agree remote management is the "least convenient" aspect of SQLite. If you have control over the remote VM where the DB is hosted, you can also run something like ClouDBeaver[0], Datasette[1] or sqlite-web[2] as a Docker container, then connect to it from your laptop.

    The reason I wrote litexplore was that those approaches require exposing extra ports, managing authentication, etc. With litexplore, you just need the sqlite3 CLI (compiled with the JSON1 extension) installed in the VM and a way to access it over SSH.

    litexplore is still in early stages and I have some updates planned in the following 2 months, but the basics are working.

    An in memory postgres DB instance for your unit tests

    Project mention: Ask HN: How do you test SQL? | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-01-31

    I was wondering the other day how to classify tests that use a test double like pg-mem, which isn't a mock but isn't the Dockerized test DB either :
