InfluxDB vs SQLite: What are the differences?
Developers describe InfluxDB as "An open-source distributed time series database with no external dependencies". InfluxDB is a scalable datastore for metrics, events, and real-time analytics. It has a built-in HTTP API so you don't have to write any server side code to get up and running InfluxDB is designed to be scalable, simple to install and manage, and fast to get data in and out.. 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.
InfluxDB and SQLite can be categorized as "Databases" tools.
"Time-series data analysis" is the top reason why over 36 developers like InfluxDB, while over 151 developers mention "Lightweight" as the leading cause for choosing SQLite.
InfluxDB is an open source tool with 16.7K GitHub stars and 2.38K GitHub forks. Here's a link to InfluxDB's open source repository on GitHub.
Intuit, Coderus, and Infoshare are some of the popular companies that use SQLite, whereas InfluxDB is used by SimpleCrypto, Impossible Software, and capscale. SQLite has a broader approval, being mentioned in 314 company stacks & 477 developers stacks; compared to InfluxDB, which is listed in 119 company stacks and 39 developer stacks.
