AlaSQL vs Pouchdb: What are the differences?

Developers describe AlaSQL as "JavaScript SQL Database for Browser and Node.js *". Open source SQL database for Javascript with a strong focus on query speed and datasource flexibility for relational data, schemaless data, and graph data. Works in your browser, Node.js and Cordova. Handles both traditional relational tables and nested JSON data (NoSQL). Export, store, and import data from localStorage, IndexedDB, and Excel. On the other hand, *Pouchdb** is detailed as "Open-source JavaScript database inspired by Apache CouchDB that's designed to run well within the browser". PouchDB enables applications to store data locally while offline, then synchronize it with CouchDB and compatible servers when the application is back online, keeping the user's data in sync no matter where they next login.

AlaSQL and Pouchdb can be primarily classified as "Databases" tools.

Some of the features offered by AlaSQL are:

  • Run SQL queries directly on javascript data arrays.
  • Bring the comfort of a full database engine to your javascript app.
  • Fast SQL based in-memory data processing for BI and ERP applications on fat clients.

On the other hand, Pouchdb provides the following key features:

  • Cross browser compatibility
  • Lightweight
  • Easy to learn

AlaSQL and Pouchdb are both open source tools. It seems that Pouchdb with 12.1K GitHub stars and 1.21K forks on GitHub has more adoption than AlaSQL with 4.51K GitHub stars and 438 GitHub forks.

    What are some alternatives to AlaSQL and Pouchdb?
    SQLite
    SQLite is an embedded SQL database engine. Unlike most other SQL databases, SQLite does not have a separate server process. SQLite reads and writes directly to ordinary disk files. A complete SQL database with multiple tables, indices, triggers, and views, is contained in a single disk file.
    Lovefield
    Written in JavaScript, works cross-browser. Provides SQL-like APIs that are fast, safe, and easy to use.
    IndexedDB
    This API uses indexes to enable high-performance searches of this data. While Web Storage is useful for storing smaller amounts of data, it is less useful for storing larger amounts of structured data.
    LokiJS
    LokiJS is a document oriented database written in javascript, published under MIT License. Its purpose is to store javascript objects as documents in a nosql fashion and retrieve them with a similar mechanism. Runs in node (including cordova/phonegap and node-webkit), nativescript and the browser.
    MySQL
    The MySQL software delivers a very fast, multi-threaded, multi-user, and robust SQL (Structured Query Language) database server. MySQL Server is intended for mission-critical, heavy-load production systems as well as for embedding into mass-deployed software.
