    Lots of things don't need failover, but if you do, you can use Bedrock, which is built on sqlite.
  • Amazon announces 'Bedrock,' its ChatGPT and DALL-E rival

    At first, I thought Amazon was launching their own SQLite hosted database.

    BedrockDB is a SQLite based database with MySQL compatible drivers.

  • Ask HN: Hunting for a Framework
    23 projects | | 4 Dec 2022
    Vapor[0] based on Swift. Advantage of this is that you don't have to evaluate multiple frameworks for Swift and suffer paralysis by analysis. All the Swift community is behind one framework.

    The next is Actix[1] based on Rust. There are many frameworks in Rust and most of them have not reached 1.0 And which framework will survive becomes a question.

    Other not so well-known is Wt[2] based on C++. This actually is created for programmers who are not web developers. The development experience is similar to desktop app development like Qt.

    If that is not acceptable then Django[3], based on Python, is the one that will be good for you.

    For the front-end I would recommend Flutter[4]. As much as I dislike getting tied to a single company for whom the framework is not their bread-and-butter, I don't see any other viable options to Flutter that will cover all web, mobile and desktop out of the box.

    For databases, I would recommend BedrockDB[5], if you are not averse to SQLite. Or FoundationDB[6], if you want NoSQL. But if you are not concerned about horizontal scalability or okay with self-managing database availability, then PostgreSQL[7] is a very good option.

    For push notifications, PushPin[8] is a good option.

    Recently I stumbled upon BedrockDB[0] from Expensify. It is based on SQLite and has very interesting idea on HA and distributed DB.

    This is not SQLite though, also the test is trivial compared to TPC:
  • Turning SQLite into a Distributed Database
    8 projects | | 21 Aug 2022
    Don’t forget BedrockDB (built on SQLite) that’s used in production at Expensify.

    How it scales as well.
