SQLite-based databases on the postgres protocol

published on 2023/07/04

Applications built on SQLite are very easy to get started with. SQLite requires no setup, no maintenance, and no scaling, and the result of that execution lies entirely in a single file that you could drop into your CI/CD for quick verification. What’s not to like?

But it’s not a common choice for production backends because of its lack of network accessibility for things like monitoring and backups. Most modern applications also need replicas for availability. And thanks to platforms such as Netlify, Vercel, and Cloudflare. applications are moving to the edge: they are now deployed everywhere, instead of somewhere.
