EdgeDB vs SQLite: What are the differences?

Developers describe EdgeDB as "The Next Generation Object-Relational Database". An object-relational database that stores and describes the data as strongly typed objects and relationships between them. On the other hand, SQLite is detailed as "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.

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

EdgeDB is an open source tool with 3.01K GitHub stars and 64 GitHub forks. Here's a link to EdgeDB's open source repository on GitHub.

        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.

        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.
