EdgeDB vs RethinkDB: What are the differences?

EdgeDB: The Next Generation Object-Relational Database. An object-relational database that stores and describes the data as strongly typed objects and relationships between them; RethinkDB: 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.

EdgeDB and RethinkDB can be categorized as "Databases" tools.

Some of the features offered by EdgeDB are:

  • Strict, strongly typed schema
  • Powerful and clean query language
  • Ability to easily work with complex hierarchical data

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.

EdgeDB and RethinkDB are both open source tools. It seems that RethinkDB with 22.4K GitHub stars and 1.74K forks on GitHub has more adoption than EdgeDB with 3.01K GitHub stars and 64 GitHub forks.
