    Streaming replication for SQLite.

    This is really interesting, its (basing it on SQLite) exactly what I was expecting CloudFlare to do for its first DB.

    Anyone from CF here, is it using Litestream (https://litestream.io) for its replication or have you built your own replication system?

    I assume this first version is somewhat limited on write performance having a single "main" instance. It seems to me that using SQLite sessions would be a good way to build an eventually consistent replication system for SQLite, maybe D2?

  • Realm

    Realm is a mobile database: a replacement for Core Data & SQLite

    I think the most successful attempt would be Realm.


  • 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.

  • deno

    A modern runtime for JavaScript and TypeScript.

    You might want to consider adding Deno [1] to the language examples: https://developers.cloudflare.com/workers/platform/languages...

    Deno can compile to wasm, so it can plug in through that vertical. But it's just TS on the frontend.

    I'm mainly a python person, but Deno's been the most alluring development in the JS ecosystem since typescript for me. Might be helpful to you all to capture some steam from source.

  • Django

    The Web framework for perfectionists with deadlines.

    I think the question is, is it painful or harmful? The early discussions only seem to reference its potential problems, with the 2014 Drupal repo[0]'s reasoning being "those terms may carry racially charged meanings to users", and the 2018 Python bug[1] referencing "for diversity reasons". Maybe there are scholarly papers on this issue?

  • rqlite

    The lightweight, distributed relational database built on SQLite

    Is this any good? https://github.com/rqlite/rqlite

    I've been looking for a turn key solution that is better than me running a single node Postgres instance "bare metal" or in a container.

    postgres-operator seems cool but... k8s, pretty heavy I guess.
