It seems both ddb and ddbc had the same idea, building a library
accessing databases independently of the kind of database. The
difference is that ddb does not seem to have the abstraction making it database independent and only works for Postgres. ddbc on the other hand does support multiple databases and have the abstraction layer. So at this point ddb is basically a Postgres driver and nothing more.


ddb was written with multiple databases in mind, mostly postgres, mysql and sqlite. db.d (DBRow definition) is database independent. postgres.d contains PGConnection, PGCommand, etc. Other backends should provide their own classes like MySqlConnection, MySqlCommand and so on. Then it's trivial to add an abstraction layer that chooses between different backends depending on the connection string for example.

Regarding ddb maintainability, thank you for your interest, I can add you both (Jacob and Eugene) to my repository as collaborators, you will have full access to repo, pull requests and issues. If I will ever need ddb in some of my project I would still have access to my repo to make some changes. If the project will grow bigger than expected we could move it to the new repo later. Is that okay for you?

yes, it is for sure ok for me. It can be a good start.

I think may be we should discuss if we can/should change something in ddb. I think there were some interesting and promising ideas in this discussion. Maybe split the PostgreSQL driver and develop it seperately and use an interface more similar to JDBC. Maybe some kind of coworking with ddbc is possible to get more developers together; maybe Suliman has some thoughts on it.

I like idea to have one good driver instead of two of not finished, and would like that it ships as vibe-d module. For my regret I have not enough so experience to help with developing. But if you will decide to collaborate with ddbc developer (he is also russian-speaker) it will be very cool.
