  • Signal Desktop is corrupting its database | 2021-02-28
    You could probably use something like to backup your signal db.
  • Has anyone read through the Sqlite Source code to learn about how Databases work? | 2021-02-19
    It was just a learning project for myself and I eventually abandoned the port. I was trying to understand SQLite to figure out how to replicate SQLite databases and that eventually became Litestream:

  • Many Small Queries Are Efficient in SQLite | 2021-02-15
    I feel like the sibling comments here are basically just saying "yep, that's the main challenge!" without providing useful tips. I personally haven't used it, but I'm aware that this library exists to help resolve this challenge.
  • Why I Built Litestream | 2021-02-11
    I've run it in Docker using a mount and it works. I haven't done extensive testing on it yet. I have an issue written to add documentation & a guide for it soon. | 2021-02-11
    Yes, there’s an issue for S3-compatible stores that will be going in the next release.
  • I Built Litestream | 2021-02-11
    I haven't tried Backblaze B2 but I agree with you on engaging in AWS hell. Litestream should work with any S3-compatible API. I've added an issue to add guides for B2 & Minio[1].

    Regarding Postgres vs SQLite, I've found that I can use much simpler SQL calls with embedded databases when I don't need to worry about N+1 query performance issues. That makes many of the query features moot. That being said, there is a JSON extension for SQLite[2] although I haven't tried it.

    Oh, I’ve been looking for this for a long time.

    Ben Johnson (boltdb). Nice.

    I’ve wanted to run SQLite in production. Lack of replication has scared me away.

    Streaming backup for now. And [live replication]( in the issues.
