RavenDB vs SQLite: What are the differences?

What is RavenDB? *A NoSQL Database that's fully transactional *. As a document database it remains true to the core principles of these type of storage mechanisms. Somehow it managed to combine the best of relational databases with that of document databases.

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.

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

RavenDB is an open source tool with 2.28K GitHub stars and 723 GitHub forks. Here's a link to RavenDB's open source repository on GitHub.

Typeform, Intuit, and Coderus are some of the popular companies that use SQLite, whereas RavenDB is used by Making Waves, Credit Clear, and Paraleap Technologies. SQLite has a broader approval, being mentioned in 443 company stacks & 2542 developers stacks; compared to RavenDB, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to RavenDB and SQLite?
      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.
      Elasticsearch
      Elasticsearch is a distributed, RESTful search and analytics engine capable of storing data and searching it in near real time. Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats and Logstash are the Elastic Stack (sometimes called the ELK Stack).
      Couchbase
      Developed as an alternative to traditionally inflexible SQL databases, the Couchbase NoSQL database is built on an open source foundation and architected to help developers solve real-world problems and meet high scalability demands.
      LiteDB
      Embedded NoSQL database for .NET. An open source MongoDB-like database with zero configuration - mobile ready
      Cassandra
      Partitioning means that Cassandra can distribute your data across multiple machines in an application-transparent matter. Cassandra will automatically repartition as machines are added and removed from the cluster. Row store means that like relational databases, Cassandra organizes data by rows and columns. The Cassandra Query Language (CQL) is a close relative of SQL.

      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.
