    How far does one have to navigate the docs before seeing some code?

      You only have to click on the well-named “Introductory example”, in the upper-left corner.

      This is very cool. Looking forward to the C/++ backend. To me the biggest limitation is that it’s an in-memory data store. I know this is a viable way to run a database, but it’s not ideal for client-side stuff where you can’t just tell your end users to shut up and buy more RAM (or rather, you can but they’ll just jump ship to a different app that doesn’t slow down or crash.)

      So I’m musing about how to tie this language into a disk-based database. Its data model seems well suited to a column-oriented DB. I’ve got some experience building higher level abstractions atop low level k/v stores like LMDB so this is tempting … but I’ve already got another project taking up all my spare time.
