AlaSQL vs SQLite: What are the differences?

What is AlaSQL? *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.

What is SQLite? A software library that implements a self-contained, serverless, zero-configuration, transactional SQL database engine. 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.

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

AlaSQL is an open source tool with 4.51K GitHub stars and 438 GitHub forks. Here's a link to AlaSQL's open source repository on GitHub.

      SQLite is a tricky beast. It's great if you're working single-threaded, but a Terrible Idea if you've got more than one concurrent connection. You use it because it's easy to setup, light, and portable (it's just a file).

      In Paperless, we've built a self-hosted web application, so it makes sense to standardise on something small & light, and as we don't have to worry about multiple connections (it's just you using the app), it's a perfect fit.

      For users wanting to scale Paperless up to a multi-user environment though, we do provide the hooks to switch to PostgreSQL .

      We build queries in PHP with DSQL that work with SQLite. We also have SQLite data controller, so that you can build SQLite-based models.

      Used during the "build process" of Coolfront Mobile's Flat rate search engine database. Flat rate data that resides in Salesforce is transformed using SQLite into a format that is usable for our mobile Flat rate search engine (AKA: Charlie).

      RDBTools is a self-hosted application, and it is important that the installation process is simple. With SQLite, we create a new database file for every analysis. Once the analysis is done, the SQLite file can be thrown away easily.

      All the dynamic data (i.e.: jobs) is stored in a simple SQLite database.

      Все динамические данные (вакансии) хранятся в простой SQLite БД.

      There's really no call for something heavier for this site. SQLite is simple, easy to use and quite reliable given its age.
