    "Mongita is to MongoDB as SQLite is to SQL"

    It's a good question and to be accurate, depending on the benchmark, Mongita is about the same speed at SQLite to several-times slower.

    There is less happening algorithmically than you would think. Where the tricky slow bits do exist, they have largely fallen into the happy-path of fast data structures in the Python language/stdlib. I also use sortedcontainers for indexes which helped quite a bit (http://www.grantjenks.com/docs/sortedcontainers/).

    If you're curious, the benchmark code is in the repo: https://github.com/scottrogowski/mongita/blob/master/benchma...

  • GitHub repo mongodb-memory-server

    Spinning up mongod in memory for fast tests. If you run tests in parallel this lib helps to spin up dedicated mongodb servers for every test file in MacOS, *nix, Windows or CI environments (in most cases with zero-config).

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • GitHub repo lungo

    A MongoDB compatible embeddable database and toolkit for Go.

  • GitHub repo sortedcontainers

    Python Sorted Container Types: Sorted List, Sorted Dict, and Sorted Set

  • GitHub repo squongo

    document store on sqlite

    Funny enough I started something like that as a ruby library and stopped when I got to the query language shim because I just ran out of time and motivation. https://github.com/wa9ace/squongo

  • GitHub repo indradb

    A graph database written in rust

    For rust, I manage a graph database that can be embedded as a library: https://github.com/indradb/indradb/
