Let's build a distributed database.
LBADD is an experimental distributed SQL database, written in Go.
The goal of this project is to build a database from scratch which is well documented, fully tested, and easy to understand. Implementing as much as possible from the ground up.
It is also currently a work in progress. Feel free to follow along with the development of each component, from parser to pager.
The database is made up of a few separate components. These handle the SQL parsing, the intermediary representation generation, the multi-node consensus, the execution of the IR, and the (persistent) storage.
For a brief overview of the purpose of each component, have a look at the overview.
Inspiration has been taken from the brilliantly documented codebase of SQLite. However the codebase has been heavily optimized, and is difficult to follow without spending significant time.
LBADD aims to replicate these in a single project. LBADD doesn't aim to be nearly as performant as SQLite nor rqlite, and hopefully trades this instead for slightly more clarity and simplicity.
