  • Wazero: Zero dependency WebAssembly runtime written in Go
    12 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 1 Jul 2023
    Never got it to anything close to a finished state, instead moving on to doing the same prototype in llvm and then cranelift.

    That said, here's some of the wazero-based code on a branch - https://github.com/cube2222/octosql/tree/wasm-experiment/was...

    It really is just a very very basic prototype.

  • DuckDB: Querying JSON files as if they were tables
    9 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 3 Mar 2023
    This is really cool!

    With their Postgres scanner[0] you can now easily query multiple datasources using SQL and join between them (i.e. Postgres table with JSON file). Something I strived to build with OctoSQL[1] before.

    It's amazing to see how quickly DuckDB is adding new features.

    Not a huge fan of C++, which is right now used for authoring extensions, it'd be really cool if somebody implemented a Rust extension SDK, or even something like Steampipe[2] does for Postgres FDWs which would provide a shim for quickly implementing non-performance-sensitive extensions for various things.

  • Show HN: ClickHouse-local – a small tool for serverless data analytics
    13 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 5 Jan 2023
    Congrats on the Show HN!

    It's great to see more tools in this area (querying data from various sources in-place) and the Lambda use case is a really cool idea!

    I've recently done a bunch of benchmarking, including ClickHouse Local and the usage was straightforward, with everything working as it's supposed to.

    Just to comment on the performance area though, one area I think ClickHouse could still possibly improve on - vs OctoSQL[0] at least - is that it seems like the JSON datasource is slower, especially if only a small part of the JSON objects is used. If only a single field of many is used, OctoSQL lazily parses only that field, and skips the others, which yields non-trivial performance gains on big JSON files with small queries.

    Basically, for a query like `SELECT COUNT(*), AVG(overall) FROM books.json` with the Amazon Review Dataset, OctoSQL is twice as fast (3s vs 6s). That's a minor thing though (OctoSQL will slow down for more complicated queries, while for ClickHouse decoding the input is and remains the bottleneck).

  • Steampipe – Select * from Cloud;
    13 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 30 Sep 2022
    To add somewhat of a counterpoint to the other response, I've tried the Steampipe CSV plugin and got 50x slower performance vs OctoSQL[0], which is itself 5x slower than something like DataFusion[1]. The CSV plugin doesn't contact any external API's so it should be a good benchmark of the plugin architecture, though it might just not be optimized yet.

    That said, I don't imagine this ever being a bottleneck for the main use case of Steampipe - in that case I think the APIs themselves will always be the limiting part. But it does - potentially - speak to what you can expect if you'd like to extend your usage of Steampipe to more than just DevOps data.

  • Go runtime: 4 years later

    Actually, folks just use gRPC or Yaegi in Go.

    See Terraform[0], Traefik[1], or OctoSQL[2].

    Although I agree plugins would be welcome, especially for performance reasons, though also to be able to compile and load go code into a running go process (JIT-ish).

    Through more magic, you COULD of course use stuff like Spark, or easier with programs like TextQL, sq, OctoSQL.
