Fair warning: this project is not maintained.
Do not use this for anything important, like... for anything. This is a database I wrote for the fun of it. It will never be production-ready.
LlamaDB is a simple SQL database, written entirely in the Rust programming language.
LlamaDB is built using the nightly builds of Rust and Cargo. For installation instructions, go to http://www.rust-lang.org.
To use the CLI, navigate to the
cli/ directory and run
You'll be greeted by the friendly

I started this mostly as a learning project so that I could learn SQL and its implementation details better. This project may or may not go anywhere; we'll just have to see.
The other reason I started this was to see how the Rust programming language could be used to write large projects such as SQL databases. So far, I think it's working out fairly well. :)
A HUGE THANKS goes out to SQLite and the SQLite documentation. Their wonderful docs helped shed some light on the SQL syntax and other crucial details such as their B-Tree implementation.
