From Web SQL to SQLite implemented in Wasm and backed by the Origin Private File System

19:45 - 20:30


The Web SQL Database API allows storing data in a structured manner in the browser. It was introduced in April 2009 and abandoned in November 2010. In this talk, I'll put the focus on a replacement technology Google is working on with the SQLite community based on SQLite implemented in WebAssembly (Wasm) and backed by the highly performant Origin Private File System (OPFS). I'll show how to make use of this tech and explain how it allows you to fulfill your storage and querying needs on the web.
