  • Debugging Chronicles: Serverless offline + Sequelize | 2021-05-02
    We immediately check the dependencies update and indeed Sequelize had been updated, then we also found an issue on their Github and some questions on StackOverflow mentioning a similar error. Nevertheless, reverting to the previous working had no effect at all. The error was still happening and we had no clue what other dependency could have something to do with an error so deep in Sequelize codebase.

  • What ORM would you recommend? | 2021-04-21
    Been using sequelize for a long time, but it just falls apart in certain scenarios. The github has tons of open and very real issues that have been open for years. It is nice and easy to use if you don't hit any of these scenarios though. Some of them I have personally experienced:

    Express.js is the primary web framework, almost everyone uses it. For database, you can try a query builder like knex.js and there's ORMs like Sequelize and TypeORM. But before this, you'd need to understand databases. I've worked with MySQL and PostgreSQL mainly, not much of an experience with NoSQL databases. For your API layers, you can check out GraphQL or a simple REST API using express. If it's super simple stuff, just make a JSON RPC.
  • What is your current stack? | 2021-04-03
    How do you go to the database? Is Sequelize still alive? I heard TypeORM is cool now? Do you just go with knex the query builder or something DBMS-specific, such as mogodb client?

    About tech Stack, I was working in Node.js with MariaDB and Fastify framework (performs better than express and other sever frameworks or library). I used Sequelize as ORM library, it is a promise-based Node.js ORM for Postgres, MySQL, MariaDB, SQLite and Microsoft SQL Server. To improve the performance of my operations, I needed to run insert operations in multiple batches and those batches had to run in parallel. Aha! Sound nice, but to how to implement it. After spending ample time of searching I found some solution on how to do it. Thanks to Evan Siroky.

  • Sequelize Vs Typeorm Vs Objection For Nodejs | 2021-01-06
    I don't know about TypeORM but Sequelize is not a suitable ORM for subQuery and complex queries, Issues is not resolving for years #9869 #11617 (hundreds of more). I am using Knex which I find the best it will not provide ORM like features but it returns clean query. You can look into microORM and Objection.
