    There’s another package called cdb.

      Came here to say this. Hopefully, the more people upvote this, the op will reconsider the name.

      1. 4

        I don’t mind changing the name at all! I didn’t expect this project to take off and get noticed by many. On reddit and here, name thing has been brought up already, so I am definitely considering to rename it.

        1. 2

          It ack’ed in the README:

          Name

          cdb is an acronym for Cask Database, and it is not related to D. J. Bernstein’s cdb. I don’t expect this to get popular or used in production environments, and naming things is hard pleading_face.

            I will never understand the obsession with naming things that aren’t user logins or executable files three characters long. “Cask DB” is a wonderful name for the project.

              hey, thank you for the feedback. I wasn’t expecting this to be noticed by many, so I just kept it as cdb. It also refers to an internal joke between me and my partner.

                I’d encourage you to rename it. cdb is a well-recognized name for djb’s project and since yours is fairly fresh, it’d be a good thing to not create an ambiguity, especially if you are aware of it. If nothing else, it will prevent any discussion of your work to veer immediately to this subject at the expense of the rest. Just like it did here.

                  This is a great point. I have renamed it to py-caskdb and I have also credited your message.

          Thanks for sharing. You might be interested in my project called LBST [0] to implement sorted kv.

            wow, this looks interesting, thanks for sharing! This is much closer to D. J. Bernstein’s constant db.
