KyotoCabinet is a newer, better version of TokyoCabinet, a simple NoSQL database engine from japan.
KyotoCabinet and TokyoCabinet are a set of database + network server + reverse index (for full-text search) libraries, implemented in C and built for speed. They represent non-relational wing of databases, though TokyoCabinet does have table-based storage with queries on tables (in a way, that mirrors basically what 90% of people use MySQL for ;-) )
Recently the project got slowed down (or rather, on hiatus) however I am moving it to use KyotoCabinet as base library. There is also commercial support available – please contact me for details (I am a Scotland-based consultant – however I can support most places through remote work)
cl-tc is a set of SWIG-based CFFI bindings for TokyoCabinet library and in future, TokyoTyrant and TokyoDystopia. Currently available bindings are 1-to-1 mapping of TokyoCabinet’s C API, available in package tokyocabinet-sys. They will be used to make a nice, CLOS-y API which will reside in package tokyocabinet, however, it’s still not written :)
