Mongoose vs SQLite: What are the differences?
What is Mongoose? MongoDB object modeling designed to work in an asynchronous environment. Let's face it, writing MongoDB validation, casting and business logic boilerplate is a drag. That's why we wrote Mongoose. Mongoose provides a straight-forward, schema-based solution to modeling your application data and includes built-in type casting, validation, query building, business logic hooks and more, out of the box.
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.
Mongoose belongs to "Object Document Mapper (ODM)" category of the tech stack, while SQLite can be primarily classified under "Databases".
"Well documented" is the primary reason why developers consider Mongoose over the competitors, whereas "Lightweight" was stated as the key factor in picking SQLite.
Mongoose is an open source tool with 18.8K GitHub stars and 2.62K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Mongoose's open source repository on GitHub.
According to the StackShare community, SQLite has a broader approval, being mentioned in 313 company stacks & 470 developers stacks; compared to Mongoose, which is listed in 85 company stacks and 88 developer stacks.
