    thats great to see RethinkDB still lives. Last release is Dec-2019. I found it’s client library query style was fantastic, and the server side management very usable.


    1. 3

      Yeah, I got into it last summer and was initially saddened to learn that it had been considered dead for quite some time. Then, elated when I learned they were doing things behind the scenes to get the communitiy up again.

      I truly believe RethinkDB is the superior and developer friendly alternative to MongoDB and have been singing its praises. I’m excited for what the team will release this year.

      Another reason to migrate is the license of MongoDB: SSPL vs. Apache 2 of RethinkDB.

        For others who may not know what SSPL entails (like me until a few minutes ago):

        Basically, SSPL means one cannot offer MongoDB as a hosted service. That makes sense from their end as they offer hosting. However, it’s a bit of a punk move because they are preventing potential competition from forcing them to improve their product.

        I am glad to see RethinkDB evolving, but out of interest who are its maintainers?
