  • I created an account on this website for one reason and one reason only. That is to comment about the watermelon database. I am using react native on an personal project and was using sqlite-storage database but I found it to be slow but preferred the syntax over realm. Anyway I switch to realm anyway because speed and security will always prevail over syntax and style preference. LITERALLY after converting my entire project I stumble upon this article 5 minutes after my painful process. WHY!?

    Nonetheless, great articles. I really enjoy this series of articles on the site. Keep 'em comin'
