  • rhizome

    A JIT for Ruby, implemented in pure Ruby

    Lots of compiler tutorials are like this - there's very little out there to explain how compilers really work.

    This is my effort - trying to show genuine data structures and processes.


  • swifties

    a custom language construction kit

    Depends on the complexity of your queries, but if you have a narrow subset that you're interested in, implementing a recursive descent parser for just those parts of the syntax that fits your problem like a glove could be a better solution.


  • grammars-v4

    Grammars written for ANTLR v4; expectation that the grammars are free of actions.

  • langjam

  • go-mysql-server

    A MySQL-compatible relational database with a storage agnostic query engine. Implemented in pure Go.

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • vitess-sqlparser

    simply SQL Parser for Go ( powered by vitess and TiDB )

  • gosql

    An early PostgreSQL implementation in Go (by eatonphil)

  • alasql

    AlaSQL.js - JavaScript SQL database for browser and Node.js. Handles both traditional relational tables and nested JSON data (NoSQL). Export, store, and import data from localStorage, IndexedDB, or Excel.

  • sqlite-parser

    JavaScript implentation of SQLite 3 query parser

  • JSqlParser

    JSqlParser parses an SQL statement and translate it into a hierarchy of Java classes. The generated hierarchy can be navigated using the Visitor Pattern

  • Presto

    The official home of the Presto distributed SQL query engine for big data

  • zetasql

    ZetaSQL - Analyzer Framework for SQL

    ZetaSQL[1] seems like it could be a fit for your use case. I've worked with Apache Calcite in the past and found it to be very complex to work with. I found ZetaSQL to be a little easier to use.
