    DuckDB can actually read SQLite or Postgres directly! In the SQLite case, something like Litestream plus DuckDB could work really well!

    Also, with Pyarrow's help, DuckDB can already do this with Delta tables!

    Excellent question! I'll jump in - I am a part of the DuckDB team though, so if other users have thoughts it would be great to get other perspectives as well.

    First things first - we really like quite a lot about the SQLite approach. DuckDB is similarly easy to install and is built without dependencies, just like SQLite. It also runs in the same process as your application just like SQLite does. SQLite is excellent as a transactional database - lots of very specific inserts, updates, and deletes (called OLTP workloads). DuckDB can also read directly out of SQLite files as well, so you can mix and match them! (https://github.com/duckdblabs/sqlitescanner)

    DuckDB is much faster than SQLite when doing analytical queries (OLAP) like when calculating summaries or trends over time, or joining large tables together. It can use all of your CPU cores for sometimes ~100x speedup over SQLite.

    DuckDB also has some enhancements with respect to data transfer in and out of it. It can natively read Pandas, R, and Julia dataframes, and can read parquet files directly also (meaning without inserting first!).

    Does that help? Happy to add more details!
