"Lovefield is a great SQL interface to local browser storage."

What do you like best?

Easy to use, and very responsive support. The example code to is realistic and a great jumping off point, showing how to initialize the DB on first load, abstract it to a general data source that relies both on lf and $http.

What do you dislike?

Biggest issue was more more a result of JS than lf itself. All DB access is non-blocking and done with Promises, which means that when you have a lot of queries to implement sequentially, the code becomes bloated with promises chains.

That said, it's great to be able to have non-blocking queries.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Fast to set up, good responsive support on Github, open source

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used lf in a "functional" product mock up where I could send the product to clients and they could run it without me having to set up a app server to serve data.

The benefits were that my [angular] controllers/factories/services could easily access the data, often without knowing where it came from.

Without lf or any other local data storage, for this mock up I'd have probably just had a static JSON file storing my data, and had to write my own getters to access the data.. This would have been time consuming and slow (especially considering that the mock up was grabbing large amounts of 3D data to render with D3.)

"Awesome product - highly recommended for small/medium scale usage"

What do you like best?

The best thing about lovefield is the ease of learning, understanding, and integrating it to your project. Writing queries were never more easier than this ! I strongly recommend this to small scale users who has minimal needs of storing and retrieving data (I haven't benchmarked the product in a large scale environment).

What do you dislike?

I haven't used this for a large scale product (where millions of users simultaneously use the product) and I don't think it can be scalable to a large extend.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you think you need a simple but effective data storage and retrieval system for your project (small/medium scale), then look no further !

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I wanted a simple but minimal method of saving and retrieving data and Lovefield is really good at it ! It easily stores and retrieves data without much overhead which is the best thing I like about it. Another very important thing is, learning to code Lovefield will take less than 4 hours for most of the web developers (so its easy to learn and code. What more a web developer needs ?)

What Relational Databases solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"LOVEFIELD RELATIONAL DATABASE REVIEW."

What do you like best?

Lovefield provides SQL-like APIs that are fast, safe, and easy to use.

What do you dislike?

The performance can slow down with huge data volume but the recommended limit in the amount of data is 50-100 thousand rows. We normally work within this limit so it is not a problem for us.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This relational database is written in JavaScript, works cross-browser. It is very user friendly and its performance is just great. Highly recommend it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In our IT infrastructure environment, we have numerous web apps and for years we were struggling to have a strong, reliable and flexible database solution for our web app needs. Lovefield solved that problem and continues to help us grow our company.

"An amazing Relational Query Engine with JS"

What do you like best?

One of the most valuable things viewed by developers is if the product/idea is an open source project. The Lovefield is an excellent example. This JavaScript SQL-like database library is very fast, useful and easy-to-learn.

What do you dislike?

Not that I did not like, but to be in the beginning also has a rather small community. If you face problems will have to count on a little help or solve their own way.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used Lovefield to develop a system used in tesis of Graduation.

"Lovefield, the relational database for a WebApp"

What do you like best?

The JavaScript library works with more popular browser. Provides SQL-like APIs that are fast, safe, and easy to use. With interaction to native data structures as is Maps for iOs, and other.

What do you dislike?

Not support for conditions in aggregators now. Not support for open-source server-side data store as rethinkdb, socketcluster and others.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Pilot tests with databases events such as Firebase, proficiency testing and evaluation of latency response to problem size (complexity).
