Another fortuitous quality of SQLite for Schemers is that it's not strict about data types. Table rows store dynamically typed values, and the column's SQL type is just a hint for implicit type conversions. > and it has virtual-table plugins for a whole bunch of other formats > as well. <https://sqlite.org/vtab.html> Had no idea about that. They've added a lot of features. There's now a "server-process edition" as well: <https://sqlite.org/src/artifact/0c6bc6f55191b690> Not quite sure what that means specifically but people are raving about it: <https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=17766799> Also, more fsync() goodness in that thread :) I'm so glad it's not our problem anymore.
