  • wp-sqlite-db

    A single file drop-in for using a SQLite database with WordPress. Based on the original SQLite Integration plugin.

    Author here, here's an in-depth writeup on how this works and why it's useful:


    To answer your questions directly:

    WebAssembly is the magic sauce that transforms server-side code into client-side code. MySQL unfortunately is not yet supported by WebAssembly, so I applied a plugin that adds SQLite supports to WordPress [0]. The WebAssembly application has its own in-memory filesystem that lives in a specific browser tab and is scraped as soon as you close it.

    So – technically it exposes db credentials, and even the entire DB, but that you are the only user of that DB so it's okay.

    > What would the backend look like

    The only backend is a static file server where the code and the database live. Your browser downloads a copy of the database and allows you to modify it in the current tab, but the updates are never saved back to the server.
