  • HackNote
    Some years ago "offline-first" was a thing: Primarily based on PouchDB/CouchDB. Now the site redirects to RxDB. There's still a site by that name but I don't quite understand what's the intention - Source: Hacker News / 2 days ago
  • Ask HN: How Can I Make My Front End React to Database Changes in Real-Time?
    I'm interested in this problem also! I think there is a large overlap with projects that market/focus on offline-first experiences. AFAIK this problem can be solved by: 1) Considering a client-side copy of the database that gets synced with the remote DB. This is an approach [PowerSync]( and [ElectricSql]( and [rxdb]( take! - Source: Hacker News / about 1 month ago
  • You can't leak users' data if you don't hold it
    Hey, after I posted that, I went and gave a second look online to see if I could find something that would allow me to develop a local-first app with offline persistence and syncing capabilities. I ended up finding some possibilities out there that could potentially help me build stuff. One of them is RxDB [1], which offers WebRTC syncing - you'd still need a signaling server, I suppose, but all sensitive... - Source: Hacker News / about 2 months ago
  • SignalDB: Bringing Meteor-Like Reactivity to the Modern Age
    About a year ago, I discovered a cool offline-first framework called RxDB. Initially, I thought that on the frontend side, this was exactly what I had been searching for over the past years. After tinkering around and even using it in production for some time, I realized that it wasn't well-suited for my intended use. RxDB was initially created as an RxJS layer for PouchDB with a server replication interface.... - Source: / 7 months ago
  • Show HN: ElectricSQL, Postgres to SQLite active-active sync for local-first apps
    Congrats to the team. Once I’ve tried and it wasn’t funny at all to do the remote replication (PG) and to deal with conflicts. I do need to check this out! - Source: Hacker News / 8 months ago
  • What did I do to deserve a JavaScript database?
    For anyone who wants to not only make jokes but actuall learn something, I recommend to start with exploring the github repo: Source: over 1 year ago
  • Ideas for DataScript 2
    Sounds like the feature set of RxDB [1]. [1] - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • Why do Webdevs keep trying to kill REST?
    Offline. Both Firebase Firestore and Amplify AppSync also support offline persistence. Since they know your database schema, it's easy to offer a local replica and conflict resolution. There are vendor agnostic alternatives like RxDB or Redux Offline that take more glue work. Being Offline-first requires you to have a local replica of your data, which means that doing CRUD against your local replica can be much... - Source: / over 2 years ago
    Not the one you’re replying to but I like RxDB. Good typescript, pretty simple setup. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • Web Applications from the Future: A Database in the Browser
    You should have a look at RxDB which does exactly what you have described. Also notice that neither firebase nor supabase is really offline-first. - Source: Hacker News / almost 3 years ago
  • Show HN: EventReduce – Algorithm to optimise db queries that run multiple times
    So now I am here again with the goal to get some feedback of people who try out EventReduce on top of their database. [1] [2] - Source: Hacker News / about 3 years ago

10 Best Open Source Firebase Alternatives
Reactive Database or RxDB is a real-time NoSQL database for JavaScript apps such as progressive web apps, electron apps, PWAs, hybrid apps, and websites.
