    I’ve been digging into DataScript (and Datomic) recently and there’s some very unique ideas that both have for representing data and relationships. I strongly encourage people to read into these tools, they’re very interesting!

    I have a mostly incomplete experimentation of a similar datastore using Python and SQLite, primarily as a means of determining if building a Datomic-clone on top of SQL stores (such as PostgreSQL) is feasible.

      Datomic itself can use eg Postgres as it’s “data service”. It’s delegating transactions and persistence to existing databases.

        Oh, I had no idea! I was under the impression they built their own storage layer.

      Unrelated, the article’s dark mode switcher is an irritating misleading eyesore, much like the color scheme.
