A future for SQL on the web  ↦

Where by “on the web” James means “in the browser”:

SQL is a great way to build apps. Especially small local web apps. Key/value stores may have their place in large distributed systems, but wow wouldn’t it be great if we could use SQLite on the web?

I’m excited to announce absurd-sql which makes this possible. absurd-sql is a filesystem backend for sql.js that allows SQLite to read/write from IndexedDB in small blocks, just like it would a disk. I ported my app to use and you can try it here.

A very cool project that was inspired by phiresky’s Hosting SQLite databases on Github Pages.
