Is there any really excellent reason to use PostgreSQL over MySQL/MariaDB for an app like #Readlebee or any other federated app? I know MySQL much better and could develop for it much faster, but if PostgreSQL is inherently better at storing and retrieving records concurrently or something like that, I'd be willing to stick with using it.
@Readlebee We tend to actively avoid MySQL because. Here are some of the reasons: https://gist.github.com/edwardloveall/5276a954140cee94b2d79e64db6936ff
@edwardloveall Thanks for that reference, it's really helpful! I do feel like Postgres is probably the "right" choice for this project. Plus knowing more than just MySQL will definitely be more enriching in the long run. 😁
Thanks! I hope I'm able to deliver something worth being excited for! 😅
