Riak vs SQLite: What are the differences?
Riak: A distributed, decentralized data storage system. Riak is a distributed database designed to deliver maximum data availability by distributing data across multiple servers. As long as your client can reach one Riak server, it should be able to write data. In most failure scenarios, the data you want to read should be available, although it may not be the most up-to-date version of that data; 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.
Riak and SQLite can be categorized as "Databases" tools.
"High Performance " is the top reason why over 9 developers like Riak, while over 151 developers mention "Lightweight" as the leading cause for choosing SQLite.
Riak is an open source tool with 3.24K GitHub stars and 530 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Riak's open source repository on GitHub.
According to the StackShare community, SQLite has a broader approval, being mentioned in 314 company stacks & 477 developers stacks; compared to Riak, which is listed in 15 company stacks and 10 developer stacks.

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 .
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.
