MySQL vs SQLite: What are the differences?
What is MySQL? The world's most popular open source database. 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.
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.
MySQL and SQLite can be categorized as "Databases" tools.
"Sql", "Free" and "Easy" are the key factors why developers consider MySQL; whereas "Lightweight", "Portable" and "Simple" are the primary reasons why SQLite is favored.
MySQL is an open source tool with 3.97K GitHub stars and 1.56K GitHub forks. Here's a link to MySQL's open source repository on GitHub.
