AlaSQL vs RethinkDB: 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, *RethinkDB** is detailed as "JSON. Scales to multiple machines with very little effort. Open source". RethinkDB is built to store JSON documents, and scale to multiple machines with very little effort. It has a pleasant query language that supports really useful queries like table joins and group by, and is easy to setup and learn.

AlaSQL and RethinkDB belong to "Databases" category of the tech stack.

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, RethinkDB provides the following key features:

  • JSON data model and immediate consistency.
  • Distributed joins, subqueries, aggregation, atomic updates.
  • Secondary, compound, and arbitrarily computed indexes.

AlaSQL and RethinkDB are both open source tools. RethinkDB with 22.4K GitHub stars and 1.74K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than AlaSQL with 4.51K GitHub stars and 438 GitHub forks.

        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.
        PostgreSQL
        PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system that supports an extended subset of the SQL standard, including transactions, foreign keys, subqueries, triggers, user-defined types and functions.
        MongoDB
        MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
        Microsoft SQL Server
        Microsoft庐 SQL Server is a database management and analysis system for e-commerce, line-of-business, and data warehousing solutions.
        MariaDB
        Started by core members of the original MySQL team, MariaDB actively works with outside developers to deliver the most featureful, stable, and sanely licensed open SQL server in the industry. MariaDB is designed as a drop-in replacement of MySQL(R) with more features, new storage engines, fewer bugs, and better performance.

        We initially chose RethinkDB because of the schema-less document store features, and better durability resilience/story than MongoDB In the end, it didn't work out quite as we expected: there's plenty of scalability issues, it's near impossible to run analytical workloads and small community makes working with Rethink a challenge. We're in process of migrating all our workloads to PostgreSQL and hopefully, we will be able to decommission our RethinkDB deployment soon.
