Is it possible to make OpenSupports work with SQlite?

It looks like redbean (orm we use) is compatible with PostgreSQL, SQLite and CUBRID.

I think it would make sense to add a "db type" field on installation to support this.

I have installed OpenSupports locally on a clients notebook. If we could use sqlite I wouldn't have to use mySQL or a WAMP stack at all for that. I think providing a single user version for windows which can be used only by utilizing php.exe -S -t . would be a great help for guys like him. He's a carpenter and uses openSupport now to track his projects. :)

Is this already in the current codebase?

No, it's not in the current codebase.

If we add SQLite as a supported database, I think we should add a warning, since it might not be appropriate to use with a high-traffic website.

Well in our experience SQLite can handle much more than people think it can - given that the right fields are indexed. But your right of course when it comes to very large company sites with hundrets of users. But then I don't think for example the current opensupport listviews are actually made for such environments in the first place.
