PouchDB adapter using ReactNative SQLite as its backing store.


SQLite storage performs much faster than AsyncStorage, especially with secondary index. Here is benchmark results:

1) allDocs speed min max mean
AsyncStorage 72ms 94ms 77ms
SQLite 27ms 39ms 28ms
2) query speed min max mean
AsyncStorage 1,075ms 1,117ms 1,092ms
SQLite 33ms 39ms 35ms
  • Device: iPhone 6s
  • Documents: 434
  • Update seq: 453
  • Iterations: 100
  • Used options: { include_docs: true }

On Simulator

  • Device: iPad Pro 9.7" (Simulator) - iOS 10.3.2
  • Documents: 5000
3) bulkDocs speed total mean
AsyncStorage 25.821ms 5.16ms
SQLite 22.213ms 4.44ms
4) allDocs speed total mean
AsyncStorage 189,379ms 37.87ms
SQLite 30,527ms 6.10ms

Install from npm:

npm install pouchdb-react-native pouchdb-adapter-react-native-sqlite --save
react-native install react-native-sqlite-2

Then import it, notify PouchDB of the plugin, and initialize a database using the react-native-sqlite adapter name:

import PouchDB from 'pouchdb-react-native'
import SQLite from 'react-native-sqlite-2'
import SQLiteAdapterFactory from 'pouchdb-adapter-react-native-sqlite'

const SQLiteAdapter = SQLiteAdapterFactory(SQLite)
const db = new PouchDB('mydb.db', {adapter: 'react-native-sqlite'});
