    No major issues but the JavaScript bindings (which are different to their wasm bindings) that I use leave a lot to be desired. To DuckDB's credit, they seem to have top-notch CPP and Python bindings that even support the efficient memory-mapped Arrow format that's super-efficient in cross-language / cross-process scenarios in addition to being a top-notch in-memory representation of Panda-like data-frames.

    DuckDB's is in constant development but doesn't yet have native cross-version export/import feature (since its developers claim DuckDB hasn't reached maturity to stabilise its on-disk formats just yet).

    I also keep an eye on and DataFusion sound the most exciting.

    It also remains to be seen how DataBrick's develops (might come in handy for much much larger datasets).
