SQL with Node

Yuck. But, got small customized project integrating with “legacy” stuff (eg, Django ;o).

$#@! this Node ecosystem, there’s a gazillion modules for everything! Which do I want?

NPM

  1. Requirements: obviously, mature and supported. Simple, otherwise would’ve used NoSQL and dealt with integration demands differently.
  2. Searching still… mysql, sql, dbms

Drivers/adapters/dialects

  1. MySQL (MariaDB?), or whatever our host has. I couldn’t care less.
  2. Pure JS driver (CoffeeScript even better). Some are written in other languages; whatever for?

Connection pools/non-blocking?

Transactions

SQL generators

Schema? ORM?

REST

Migrations

Deployment, administration…
