AlaSQL - an open source SQL database for JavaScript

2019-02-14

AlaSQL.js - JavaScript SQL database for browser and Node.js. Handles both traditional relational tables and nested JSON data (NoSQL). Export, store, and import data from localStorage, IndexedDB, or Excel.

Today I came across AlaSQL from hackernews, I've played around a little bit and seems fascinating to me.

AlaSQL is an<span style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); color: rgb(36, 41, 46);"> open source SQL database for JavaScript with a strong focus on query speed and data source flexibility for both relational data and schemaless data.

The most promising thing which I found in this library was:

The library adds the comfort of a full database engine to your JavaScript app. No, really - it's working towards a full database engine complying with most of the SQL-99 language, spiced up with additional syntax for NoSQL (schema-less) data and graph networks.

<span style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); color: rgb(36, 41, 46);">It works in the web browser, Node.js, and mobile apps. Even it can also run in web worker.

There documentation seems a bit immature compare to other standard documentation(I hope they make proper documentation).

Like each library/package/framework out there on internet AlaSQL also has their limitations but overall it seems much powerful.

I'm looking forward to give it a try soon!

Important links about AlaSQL:

As a developer, I always see the problem for creating images/banners whenever I post some content online.

Even for simple designs I always needed to open figma or search online, so I thought of automating it.

I've build BannerPot to solve this problem, would you like to give it a try?
