    Skytable is a fast, secure and reliable realtime NoSQL database with keyspaces, tables, data types, authn/authz, snapshots and more to build powerful apps

    Back in June 2020, I started writing what is now known as Skytable, a NoSQL database project. Ever since, I have been maintaining Skytable, mostly in my free time and have recently been spending a lot of time on it. Here's a little story on my two years of experience in maintaining an open-source project: what it's like, the highs and lows and the future.

  • MkDocs

    Project documentation with Markdown.

    After many iterations, the protocol was finally much better than what it used to be. It still had length headers, but it was far less funky than it used to be. And we finally had persistence. I also added several other utilities like background saving, snapshots, configuration and more. Also, I took the time to set up a documentation site (it was then built with mkdocs) to make it easier for folks to set up things on their machines. We eventually switched to Docusaurus and it has been a pleasant experience, thanks to its easy versioning. TerrabaseDB switched names to Skytable, especially inspired by Linux landing on Mars.
