MongoDB vs OrbitDB: What are the differences?
Developers describe MongoDB as "The database for giant ideas". 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. On the other hand, OrbitDB is detailed as "Peer-to-Peer Databases for the Decentralized Web". It is a serverless, distributed, peer-to-peer database. It uses IPFS as its data storage and IPFS Pubsub to automatically sync databases with peers. It’s an eventually consistent database that uses CRDTs for conflict-free database merges making it an excellent choice for decentralized apps (dApps), blockchain applications and offline-first web applications.
MongoDB and OrbitDB belong to "Databases" category of the tech stack.
MongoDB is an open source tool with 17.8K GitHub stars and 4.43K GitHub forks. Here's a link to MongoDB's open source repository on GitHub.
